German physicist who discovered the law, named after him, which states that the current flow through a conductor is directly proportional to the potential difference (voltage) and inversely proportional to the resistance.
While his work greatly influenced the theory and applications of current electricity it was so coldly received that Ohm resigned his post as professor of mathematics in Cologne. Only years later his work began to be recognized; in 1841 he was awarded the Copley Medal of the Royal Society of London and was made a foreign member a year later. In 1845 he became a full member of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences and Humanities.
The ohm, the physical unit measuring electrical resistance, also was named for him.
Ohm died 6 July 1854, Munich.
