Abohm


Abohm

The abohm is the basic unit of electrical resistance in the centimeter gram second system of units. One abohm is equal to 10-9 ohms in the SI system of units; one abohm is a nanoohm.

When a current of one abampere (1 abA) flows through a resistance of 1 abohm, the resulting potential difference across the component is one abvolt (1 abV).
