Which Joe gave his name to ‘sloppy joes’? We look at five interesting sandwiches and their lexical origins.
A law stating that electric current is proportional to voltage and inversely proportional to resistance.
- ‘The relationship, however, abruptly deviates from Ohm's law with further decreases in the membrane potential.’
- ‘These conditions lead to a Luttinger liquid, which is capable of violating Ohm's law and displaying other unusual properties.’
- ‘This conductance is approximately two orders of magnitude lower than the conductance calculated from Ohm's law if the channel radius is taken to be equal to 1 nm.’
- ‘This is a qualitative description of Ohm's law (I = V / R) that accounts for the observation that current strength is proportional to the amount of voltage.’
- ‘Kirchhoff's laws followed from applying Ohm's law but the way in which he was able to generalise the results showed great mathematical skills.’
