Siemens (unit)

Siemens
symbol S, <math> (\ mho)< /math>
Dimension conductance (G)
SI 1 A ²·s ³/(kg·m ²) = 1 A/V

Siemens is the unit of the electrical conductance in SI. It is designated after Werner von Siemens.

The outdated designation Mho (unit symbol <math> \ mho< /math>) (Ohm backwards) for Siemens is often used in the angloamerikanischen linguistic area within the field of electronics.

1 S: = 1 Ω -1 = 1 A/V
