Name hectoohm
Category Electrical Resistance
Details A hectoohm (hΩ) is a unit of electrical resistance used in the field of electromagnetism and electric circuit analysis. It is a derived unit in the International System of Units (SI) and represents the resistance of an electrical conductor through which a constant current of one ampere produces a voltage of one hundred volts across its terminals.

The term "hecto" is a metric prefix that indicates a factor of 100, or 10^2. Therefore, 1 hectoohm (hΩ) is equal to 100 ohms (Ω). It is a relatively uncommon unit in practice, as electrical resistance values are more commonly expressed in smaller or larger units, like ohms (Ω), kiloohms (kΩ), or megaohms (MΩ). Nonetheless, hectoohm is a useful unit when certain specific scenarios require intermediate unit scale between ohms and kiloohms.
