Ohm law

(ōm),
in an electric current passing through a wire, the intensity of the current (I) in amperes equals the electromotive force (E) in volts divided by the resistance (R) in ohms: I = E/R.
[George S. Ohm]

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.
