How to Convert Abohms to Ohms

To convert a abohm measurement to a ohm measurement, multiply the electrical resistance by the conversion ratio. One abohm is equal to 1.0E-9 ohms, so use this simple formula to convert:

ohms = abohms × 1.0E-9

The electrical resistance in ohms is equal to the abohms multiplied by 1.0E-9.

For example, here's how to convert 5 abohms to ohms using the formula above.
5 abΩ = (5 × 1.0E-9) = 5.0E-9 Ω

Abohms and ohms are both units used to measure electrical resistance. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.


The abohm is the resistance between two points of an electrical conductor transmitting a current of one abampere when the potential difference is one abvolt. One abohm is equal to one nanoohm.

The abohm is a centimeter-gram-second (CGS) electromagnetic unit of electrical resistance. Abohms can be abbreviated as abΩ, for example 1 abohm can be written as 1 abΩ.


The ohm is the resistance between two points of an electrical conductor transmitting a current of one ampere when the potential difference is one volt.

The ohm is the SI derived unit for electrical resistance in the metric system. Ohms can be abbreviated as , for example 1 ohm can be written as 1 Ω.

Ohm's Law states the current between two points on a conductor is proportional to the voltage and inversely proportional to the resistance. Using Ohm's Law, it's possible to express the resistance in ohms as an expression using current and voltage.


The resistance in ohms is equal to the potential difference in volts divided by the current in amperes.

Unit of Measurement Conversion Made Easy!

There are thousands of units of measure in use across the globe, and converting from one to another can be very difficult since each conversion requires a different formula to derive the result. Our unit of measurement conversion tools are meant to be dead easy. We break the mold of the typical dry and complicated experience. In addition to converting from one measurement to another, we provide the formula so you can see how the conversion is done, use it on you’re own calculator if you need to!

Understanding the Metric System

The metric system makes it relatively easy to convert from one metric unit to another metric unit. The metric system uses a base unit, think meters or grams, and a prefix such as kilo or milli. The prefixes differ from the base units by differing powers of 10. So to convert within the metric system it’s usually a matter of multiplying or dividing by one of the powers of 10.

Here is a list of some of the common metric prefixes:

  • “kilo” – 1,000x larger
  • “hecto” – 100x larger
  • “deca” – 10x larger
  • “deci” – 10x smaller
  • “centi” – 100x smaller
  • “milli” – 1,000x smaller

There is a helpful mnemonic for remembering the prefixes: “King Henry Died Until Drinking Chocolate Milk.”
The u in Until refers to the base unit.
