## How to Convert Gigaohms to Ohms

To convert a gigaohm measurement to an ohm measurement, multiply the electrical resistance by the conversion ratio. One gigaohm is equal to 1,000,000,000 ohms, so use this simple formula to convert:

The electrical resistance in ohms is equal to the gigaohms multiplied by 1,000,000,000.

**For example,**here's how to convert 5 gigaohms to ohms using the formula above.

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

## Gigaohms

One gigaohm is equal to 1,000,000,000 ohms, which is the resistance between two points of a conductor with one ampere of current at one volt.

The gigaohm is a multiple of the ohm, which is the SI derived unit for electrical resistance. In the metric system, "giga" is the prefix for 10^{9}. Gigaohms can be abbreviated as *GΩ*, for example 1 gigaohm can be written as 1 GΩ.

## Ohms

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.^{[1]}

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

R_{Ω} = V_{V}I_{A}

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