George Simon Ohm (Erlangen, March 16, 1789-Munich, July 6, 1854) was a German physicist and mathematician who contributed to the theory of electricity Ohm's Law, known for his research on electrical currents.

 He studied the relationship between the intensity of an electric current, the electromotive force and resistance, formulated in 1827 the law that bears his name stating that: I = V / R also became interested in acoustics, the polarization of the batteries and light interference.

The unit of electrical resistance, the ohm, is named in his honor.1 finished occupying the position of conservative cabinet of Physics of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences and Humanities.
