Siemens

 

the unit of electrical conductivity in the International System of Units (SI). Named in honor of W. von Siemens, the unit has the designation S in the international system. A Siemens is equal to the electrical conductivity of a conductor having a resistance of 1 ohm. In the 19th century, the Siemens was a unit of electrical resistance. Now obsolete, it was equal to the resistance of a column of mercury with a length of 1 m and a cross-sectional area of 1 mm2 at 0°C.

siemens

[′sē·mənz]
(electricity)
A unit of conductance, admittance, and susceptance, equal to the conductance between two points of a conductor such that a potential difference of 1 volt between these points produces a current of 1 ampere; the conductance of a conductor in siemens is the reciprocal of its resistance in ohms. Formerly known as mho (Ω); reciprocal ohm. Symbolized S.
