ohmic resistance

[′ō·mik ri′zis·təns]
Property of a substance, circuit, or device for which the current flowing through it is proportional to the potential difference across it.

Resistance, Ohmic


an old term for the resistance presented to a direct current by an electric circuit. The Ohmic resistance is the limiting value of the AC, or effective, resistance as ω → 0, where ω is the frequency of an alternating current. The term “Ohmic resistance” emphasizes the fulfillment of Ohm’s law—that is, the existence of a linear relationship between the current and voltage.
