Adjective "ohmic" definition and examples

Definitions and examples


  1. 'In high external potassium the current did reverse at the expected potassium equilibrium potential but it did not follow the expected ohmic relations.'
  2. 'At low potentials, pores remain open and demonstrate ohmic behavior.'


1. the standard unit of electrical resistance in the International System of Units (SI), formally defined to be the electrical resistance between two points of a conductor when a constant potential difference applied between these points produces in this conductor a current of one ampere. The resistance in ohms is numerically equal to the magnitude of the potential difference. Symbol:Ω.
