World’s Super Scientists – George Simon Ohm

Ohm—the ‘Om’ of electricity – George Simon Ohm Ohm, George Simon (1789 to 1854) German physicist was born in Bavaria, son of a locksmith and gunsmith. In 1811 he received his doctorate in mathematics. At the age of 30 Scientist George Simon Ohm joined the Jesuit College at Cologne as professor of mathematics, but his contribution to electrical science was not recognized. In 1827 Scientist George Simon Ohm contributed Ohm’s Law which states that the current flow through a conductor is directly proportional to the potential difference, i.e., voltage, and inversely proportional to the resistance. I = V/R V = […]
