- ‘The correct way to split T3 cables is to use what's called a power splitter, which contains a transformer to balance the impedance properly at 75 ohms on all connections.’
- ‘It is important for the termination to be precisely 50 ohms for the bridge to function properly on 50-ohm communication systems.’
- ‘Resistance of electrodes was held below 10K ohms.’
- ‘If you use a resistor less than 100 ohms you'll know it because it will get hot.’
Mid 19th century: named after G. S. Ohm(see Ohm, Georg).
