# Question #dfcf3

##### 1 Answer

An object that allows 1 Amp of current to flow through it, when the potential difference across it is 1 Volt, has a resistance of 1 Ohm.

#### Explanation:

The Ohm is a measure of resistance. The word "

This says that if the object's resistance is doubled, then the voltage has to be doubled if the desire is to force the same current

Therefore:

An object that allows 1 Amp of current to flow through it, when the potential difference across it is 1 Volt, has a resistance of 1 Ohm.

Or, an object that allows 10 Amps of current to flow through it, when the potential difference across it is 20 Volts, has a resistance of 2 Ohms.

I hope this helps,
