Electrical engineering is a field of engineering that deals with the study and application of electricity, electronics and electromagnetism. It covers subtopics like power, electronics, control systems, signal processing and telecommunications.
The electrical resistance of a circuit component is the opposition to the passage of an electric current through that component.
The SI unit of electrical resistance is the ohm (Ω), while electrical conductance is measured in siemens (S). The ohm is defined as a resistance between two points of a conductor when a constant potential difference of 1 volt applied to these points produces a current of 1 ampere.
Using the Electrical Resistance Converter
This online unit converter allows quick and accurate conversion between many units of measure, from one system to another. The Unit Conversion page provides a solution for engineers, translators, and for anyone whose activities require working with quantities measured in different units.
You can use this online converter to convert between several hundred units (including metric, British and American) in 76 categories, or several thousand pairs including acceleration, area, electrical, energy, force, length, light, mass, mass flow, density, specific volume, power, pressure, stress, temperature, time, torque, velocity, viscosity, volume and capacity, volume flow, and more.
Note: Integers (numbers without a decimal period or exponent notation) are considered accurate up to 15 digits and the maximum number of digits after the decimal point is 10.
In this calculator, E notation is used to represent numbers that are too small or too large. E notation is an alternative format of the scientific notation a · 10x. For example: 1,103,000 = 1.103 · 106 = 1.103E+6. Here E (from exponent) represents “· 10^”, that is “times ten raised to the power of”. E-notation is commonly used in calculators and by scientists, mathematicians and engineers.
- Select the unit to convert from in the left box containing the list of units.
- Select the unit to convert to in the right box containing the list of units.
- Enter the value (for example “15”) into the left From box.
- The result will appear in the Result box and in the To box.
- Alternatively, you can enter the value into the right To box and read the result of conversion in the From and Result boxes.
