Full name: kiloohm
Plural form: kiloohms
Alternate spelling: kilohms
Category type: electric resistance
Scale factor: 1000
The SI derived unit for electric resistance is the ohm.
1 ohm is equal to 0.001 kiloohm.
Valid units must be of the electric resistance type.
You can use this form to select from known units:
The SI prefix "kilo" represents a factor of 103, or in exponential notation, 1E3.
So 1 kiloohm = 103 ohms.
The definition of a ohm is as follows:
The ohm (symbol: Ω) is the SI unit of electrical impedance or, in the direct current case, electrical resistance, named after Georg Ohm. It is defined as the resistance between two points of a conductor when a constant potential difference of 1 volt, applied to these points, produces in the conductor a current of 1 ampere, the conductor not being the seat of any electromotive force.
