Ohmic Resistance

True resistance as distinguished from spurious resistance, or counter-electro-motive force.

True resistance measured in ohms as distinguished from counter-electro-motive force, q. v. The latter is called often spurious resistance.

Synonym: True Resistance.

[Transcriber's note: "True" vs. "spurious" are interesting terms, considering that today we define impedance as a combination of "real" resistance and "imaginary" capacitive and inductive reactance.]
