"Ohms" in context

Ohms is a unit of electrical resistance in the International System of Units (SI). It is named after the German physicist Georg Ohm, who first formally stated the relationship between voltage, current, and resistance in electrical circuits. Ohm's law states that the current flowing in an electrical circuit is directly proportional to the voltage and inversely proportional to the resistance. In other words, when voltage increases, the current increases and the resistance decreases, while when the voltage decreases, the resistance increases and the current decreases.
