Mho Definition and Usage

The mho is a unit of electrical conductance and is the reciprocal of the resistance in ohms, and is actually ohm spelled backwards. One mho is equal to one siemens, which is the SI derived unit of conductance.

Mhos can be abbreviated as , for example 1 mho can be written as 1 ℧.

Background and Origin

The mho originated in the late 1800s, when it was suggested for use by Lord Kelvin. According to the NIST, the mho is now an unacceptable unit for use with other SI units and its use should be avoided.
