Unit abS
Name absiemens
Category Electrical Conductance
Details The abS (absiemens) is a unit of electrical conductance in the CGS (centimeter-gram-second) system of units, which is an older system predating the International System of Units (SI). One absiemens is defined as the conductance of an electrical component that allows one abampere of current to flow when one abvolt of potential difference is applied across it.

In the SI system, the unit of electrical conductance is the siemens (S), and the relationship between absiemens and siemens is:

1 absiemens = 1 x 10⁻⁹ siemens

So, the absiemens is a smaller unit of electrical conductance compared to the siemens, and it is rarely used in modern electrical engineering since the SI system has become the standard for most scientific and engineering fields.
