Georg Simon Ohm (16 Mairch 1789 – 6 Julie 1854) wis a German pheesicist an mathematician. As a heich schuil teacher, Ohm began his research wi the new electrochemical cell, inventit bi Italian scientist Alessandro Volta. Uisin equipment o his ain creation, Ohm foond that thare is a direct proportionality atween the potential difference (voltage) applied across a conductor an the resultant electric current. This relationship is kent as Ohm's law.
