 (Ω) [ōm]
the SI unit of electrical resistance, named for Georg Simon Ohm; one ohm is produced when a current of 1 ampere flowing through a conductor produces a potential difference of 1 volt. Impedance is also measured in ohms.


Georg S., German physicist, 1787-1854. See: ohm, Ohm law.

ohm (Ω),

The practical unit of electrical resistance; the resistance of any conductor allowing 1 A of current to pass under the electromotive force of 1 V.
[George S. Ohm]

ohm - the practical unit of electrical resistance.
Ohm law - in an electric current passing through a wire, the intensity of the current in amperes equals the electromotive force in volts divided by the resistance in ohms.

Working with the Project Talent Data Bank, Gohm, Humphreys, and Yao (1998) found that those gifted in spatial reasoning (top 1%), compared with those gifted in mathematics (top 1%) made less effective use of their academic capabilities, had interests that were less compatible with traditional coursework, received less college guidance, showed lower levels of motivation and aspiration, and attained lower levels of academic and occupational success.
Covering the 190 nm to 1100 nm spectral response range, the Si photodiodes have built-in feedback resistance and feedback capacitance of 1 Gohm and 5 pF, respectively.
Developing spatial thinking has been neglected in school environments to the point that students who have exceptional ability in this domain reported disenchantment with school and were far less likely to pursue advanced academic degrees than their peers who have comparable abilities in other domains (Gohm, Humphreys, and Yao 1998).
For example, individuals from divorced families, compared with those from intact families, were found to have lower self-concept (Parish & Wigle, 1985; Slater, Stewart, & Linn, 1983), lower life satisfaction and well-being (Amato & Booth, 1991; Furstenberg & Teitler, 1994; Gohm, Oishi, Darlington, & Diener, 1998), an increased risk of experiencing relationship difficulties (Amato, 1996; Feng, Giarrusso, Bengston, & Frye 1999; Summers, Forehand, Armistead, & Tannenbaum, 1998), lower levels of intimacy with parents and peers (Cooney & Kurz, 1996), and a heightened risk of psychopathology (Cooney & Kurz, 1996; Furstenberg & Teitler, 1994; Kurdek & Sinclair, 1988; McCabe, 1997; Swartzman-Schatman & Schinke, 1993).

Friendship is a ubiquitous and important type of close relationship, and researchers have reported that an individual incorporating a friend's resources, perspectives, and identities is positively related to mutual self-enhancement (Dalsky, Gohm, Noguchi, & Shiomura, 2008), which is a drive to overvalue people, places, and things with which one is associated (Pelham, Mirenberg, & Jones, 2002).
These studies suggest that individual differences in EI determine the way people react to stress and negative emotions and how they cope with stress and regulate their emotions (Gohm, 2003; Montes-Berges & Augusto, 2007).
Coping and emotion regulation can be understood as a merging binomial and are commonly approached as inherently interdependent processes either in attachment (Fuendeling, 1998; Lopez & Brennan, 2000), coping (Folkman & Moskowitz, 2004; Gohm & Clore, 2002) and emotion regulation (Gross & Thomson, 2007) frameworks.
