Category Electrical Resistance
Details In the field of Electrical Resistance, kΩ (kiloohm) is a unit of measure representing 1,000 ohms. Ohm is the standard unit of electrical resistance in the International System of Units (SI). Electrical resistance is the opposition or hindrance that a material offers to the passage of electric current through it. The higher the value of resistance (in ohms), the greater the opposition to electric current flow. The unit kiloohm is commonly used when the resistance value is in the thousands of ohms range, which helps to simplify the representation of larger resistance values.
