How to Convert Microohms to Ohms

To convert a microohm measurement to an ohm measurement, divide the electrical resistance by the conversion ratio.

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

ohms = microohms ÷ 1,000,000

The electrical resistance in ohms is equal to the microohms divided by 1,000,000.

For example, here's how to convert 5,000,000 microohms to ohms using the formula above.
5,000,000 µΩ = (5,000,000 ÷ 1,000,000) = 5 Ω

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

Microohms

One microohm is equal to 1/1,000,000 of an ohm, which is the resistance between two points of a conductor with one ampere of current at one volt.

The microohm is a multiple of the ohm, which is the SI derived unit for electrical resistance. In the metric system, "micro" is the prefix for 10-6. Microohms can be abbreviated as µΩ; for example, 1 microohm can be written as 1 µΩ.

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 ; 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.
