A Little History About Ohm

George Simon Ohm was a German physicist born in Erlangen, Bavaria, March 16, 1787. As a high school teacher, Ohm began his research with the cell, newly invented electricity, invented by Alessandro Volta Italian Conte. The use of computer of their own creation, Ohm found that the current flowing in a wire is proportional to its cross section and inversely proportional to its length. Using the results of their experiments, Georg Simon Ohm was able to define the fundamental relationship between voltage, current and resistance. These relationships are of such fundamental importance that represent the true beginning of electrical circuit analysis. Unfortunately, when Ohm published his discovery in 1827, his ideas were rejected by their peers. Ohm was forced to resign from his teaching job in high school and lived in poverty and shame. However, his research award won support outside Germany.

In 1849 Georg Simon Ohm finally recognized for his efforts to be appointed professor at the University of Munich.
