Transcript of Georg Simon Ohm

Erlangen, Germany(Bavaria)

March 16, 1789-July 6, 1854

1805-Attended the University of Erlangen and continued to re-enroll himself to improve his education

1841-He received the Copley Medal from the Royal Society

1849-Offered a post at the University of Munich

1852-Appointed to the Chair of Physics at the University of Munich
Historical Information
Georg Simon Ohm
George Ohm was a nonconformists.

He wrote an elementary textbook on the teaching of geometry.

1827-His work in which he gave his complete theory of electricity, The Galvanic Circuit Investigated Mathematically, was published.

Martin Ohm, his brother, came to become a well-known mathematician.

Ohm is associated with the international unit of electrical resistance.
I believe Georg Simon Ohm serves as an inspiration to many people by not settling for a job he was not content with. Despite the opposition, he continued to strive for something greater and if it were not for his persistent efforts he may have never been recognized for his incredible work.
People who work with dangerously large voltages deserve the best protection possible.

Superconductors are the key to unlocking 100% efficiency in all electrical circuits. The potential is massive.
Body Suits and Superconductors
I feel Georg Ohm and his work is truly underrated. Without his will and curiosity, it's possible that all electric-based technology could have been set back several years.
Georg Ohm is most famous for his "Ohms Law" which indicates that the current flow through a conductor is directly proportional to the voltage and inversely proportional to the resistance.

Contribution to Society (electricity)
Nonohmic-materials that do not act in accordance with Ohm's Law

Johann Wolfgang Ohm, Georg's father, taught him mathematics, physics, chemistry and philosophy at a very young ago.

Georg was forced to drop out of UE for wasting his time on other extracurricular activities.

1806-He became a mathematics teacher in a school in Switzerland after only attending college for three semesters.
Because of Ohm's work in classifying materials based on its ability to conduct current, the advancement of electrical engineering has become an exceedingly important matter for modernizing society, culture and civilization.

A resistor is a component that
governs the flow of electrical current in a an electronic circuit. The ohm (symbol: Ω) (named after Georg Ohm himself) is the SI derived unit of electrical resistance.

Georg Ohm was a fantastic researcher and physicist. Yes, he was recognized for the work he did but I feel he was a bit overlooked considering the fact that he changed physics entirely.
