RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The Internet was still largely an unknown entity at the time and not much was available in the form of WYSIWYG ...

The unit of electrical electrical resistance is the ohm. It is named after named after Georg Simon Ohm.
One volt of direct current applied across one ohm of resistance causes one ampere of current to flow, and one watt of power to be dissipated across the resistor.
Standard unit = Ohm (Ω)
|1 ab Ω =||1||10-9||1.113 * 10-|
|1 stat Ω =||109||1||1.113 * 10-12|
|1 stat Ω =||8.987 * 1020||8.987 * 1011||1|
Note: The prefix "ab" is used to indicate an electromagnetic unit in the centimeter-gram-second system.
