How to Convert Ohms to Microohms

To convert a measurement in ohms to a measurement in microohms, multiply the electrical resistance by the following conversion ratio: 1,000,000 microohms/ohm.

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

microohms = ohms × 1,000,000

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

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

How Many Microohms Are in an Ohm?

There are 1,000,000 microohms in an ohm, which is why we use this value in the formula above.

1 Ω = 1,000,000 µΩ

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

What Is an Ohm?

An ohm is the resistance between two points of an electrical conductor transmitting a current of one ampere when the electrical potential difference is one volt between the points.[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

Ohm's Law states the current flowing between two points on a conductor is proportional to the voltage and inversely proportional to the resistance. More specifically, the current is equal to the voltage divided by 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

Here, the resistance R in ohms is equal to the potential difference V in volts divided by the current I in amperes.

What Is a Microohm?

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 millionths, or 10-6. Microohms can be abbreviated as µΩ; for example, 1 microohm can be written as 1 µΩ.
