George Simon Ohm, the man behind the ohm's law is today's EE hero. The unit of resistance (electrical) is named after this man.
Georg Simon Ohm was born in Erlangen, Bavaria, on March 16, 1787. He first published the theory behind ohm's law in the book, Die galvanische Kette Mathematisch Bearbeitet. He may have died in 1954, but his works, and the ohm's law itself is mentioned and is being applied everyday.
Everyone who is into Electricity and Electrical Engineering knows how important Ohm's law is. It is the single mathematical equation that describes the basic relationship of electricity and its elements. At its purest form, it is composed of only three figures; V=IR. It means that, the current flowing in the medium is directly proportional to the voltage and is inversely proportional to the resistance. Ohm's Law (V=IR) is as basic to the study of electronics, as Newton's Law (F=mA) is to classical physics. For that, we need to thank Geroge Simon Ohm.
Yet, its beginning is somehow far from easy. In fact, early scientists, his colleagues apparently dismissed his work, causing him both poverty and humiliation. During his time, the approach to physics are less mathematical, and George Simon Ohm is one of those who used mathematics. For this, he was an outcast, and died a poor man.
But today, George Simon Ohm could proudly say that he was, and is right all along.
