ohm

 (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.

Ohm,

Georg Simon, German physicist, 1787-1854.
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.
