## How to Convert Gigaohms to Ohms

To convert a gigaohm measurement to an ohm measurement, multiply the electrical resistance by the conversion ratio.

Since one gigaohm is equal to 1,000,000,000 ohms, you can use this simple formula to convert:

ohms = gigaohms × 1,000,000,000

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.
5 GΩ = (5 × 1,000,000,000) = 5,000,000,000 Ω

### How Many Ohms Are in a Gigaohm?

There are 1,000,000,000 ohms in a gigaohm, which is why we use this value in the formula above.

1 GΩ = 1,000,000,000 Ω

## 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 109. 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.

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.

R = VV / IA

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