## How to Convert Ohms to Abohms

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

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

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

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

## 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.

## Abohms

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.
