## Measurement unit: milliohm

**Full name:** milliohm

**Plural form:** milliohms

**Symbol:** mΩ

**Category type:** electric resistance

**Scale factor:** 0.001

## SI unit: ohm

The SI derived unit for electric resistance is the ohm.

1 ohm is equal to 1000 milliohm.

Valid units must be of the **electric resistance** type.

## Definition: Milliohm

The SI prefix "milli" represents a factor of
10^{-3}, or in exponential notation, 1E-3.

So 1 milliohm = 10^{-3} 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.
