Georg Simon Ohm was born on March 16th, 1789. He died on July 6th, 1854. He was a German physicist. As a high school teacher, Ohm began his research with the recently invented electrochemical cell [ (Unknown.) ] Using his own equipment, Ohm determined that there is a connection between the electrical forces (voltage) applied across a conductor and the resultant electric current. This known as Ohm’s law, which is named after him. Ohm was born in Erlangen, Bavaria. His parents were Johann Wolfgang Ohm and Maria Elizabeth Beck. They were Protestants. Although his parents were not really educated, Ohm's father educated himself enough to have Ohm home schooled. His mother died when he was ten. From early childhood, Georg and his brother Martin, a well-known mathematician, were both taught by their father in math, physic, and chemistry. Georg Simon attended Erlangen Gymnasium from age eleven to fifteen (Unknown.) His father, concerned that his son was wasting the educational opportunity, sent Ohm to Switzerland. Then in September 1806, he started as a math teacher (Britannica.) Karl Christian van Langsdorf left the University of Erlangen in early 1809 to go to the University of Heidelberg. Ohm wanted to go with him to Heidelberg to restart his math studies. Langsdorf told Ohm to continue with his studies of mathematics on his own. Rather reluctantly Ohm took his advice but he left his teaching post in Gottstadt bei Nydau in March 1809 to become a private tutor in Neuchatel. For two years he carried out his duties as a tutor while he followed Langsdorf's advice and continued his private study of mathematics. Then in April 1811 he returned to the University of Erlangen. His studies had stood him in good position for his receiving a doctorate from Erlangen on 25 October 1811 and immediately joined the staff as a mathematics lecturer. After three semesters Ohm gave up his university post because of unpromising prospects while he couldn't make both ends meet with the...

...Research Paper – GeorgOhmGeorgOhm was a German physicist born in March of 1789.
Georg came from a Protestant family. His father who was a locksmith Johann Wolfgang Ohm, and his mother who is Maria Elizabeth Beck, was the daughter of a tailor. Even though his parents had not been really educated at the time, Ohm's father was a very wise man who had educated himself and his son Georg.
In my research I found out that he wrote an elementary grade geometry book while teaching mathematics at several schools. Ohm began experimental work in a school physics lab after he had learned of the discovery of electromagnetism. Ohm gave a mathematical description of conduction in circuits modeled on Fourier's study of heat conduction. Ohm's well understanding of results from the experimental evidence and, he was able to suggest laws which really helped explain results of others working on galvanic electricity.
Ohm's Law - Using the results of his experiments, GeorgOhm was able to define the basic relationship between voltage, current, and resistance. The equation I = V/R is known as "Ohm’s Law". It states that the amount of steady current through a material is directly proportional to the voltage across the material divided by the electrical resistance of the material. The ohm (R), a unit of electrical...

...Bavarian mathematician and physicist GeorgOhm.
Ohm's Law can be stated as mathematical equations, all derived from the
same principle.
In the following equations,
V is voltage measured in volts (the size of the water tank),
I is current measured in amperes (related to the pressure (Voltage) of water thru the pipes and faucet) and
R is resistance measured in ohms as related to the size of the pipes and faucet:
V = I x R (Voltage = Current multiplied by Resistance)
R = V / I (Resistance = Voltage divided by Current)
I = V / R (Current = Voltage Divided by Resistance)
Knowing any two of the values of a circuit, one can determine (calculate) the third, using Ohm's Law.
For example, to find the Voltage in a circuit:
If the circuit has a current of 2 amperes, and a resistance of 1 ohm, (< these are the two "knowns"), then according to Ohms Law and the formulas above, voltage equals current multiplied by resistance:
(V = 2 amperes x 1 ohm = 2 volts).
To find the current in the same circuit above assuming we did not know it but we know the voltage and resistance:
I = 2 volts divided by the resistance 1 ohm = 2 amperes.
In this third example we know the current (2 amperes) and the voltage (2 volts)....what is the resistance?
Substituting the formula:
R = Volts divided by the current (2 volts divided by 2 amperes = 1...

"Ohm's Law is the relationship among electric current, resistance, and voltage. The principle is named after the German scientist George Simon Ohm." Webster's Online Dictionary. I will be discussing the uses of Ohm's Law and why it is so important in everyday electrical problems whether it be simple or not. It is everywhere and used by many whether they notice it or not.
Ohms law states that current in amperes is equal to voltage divided by resistance. This form of ohms law is most useful for technicians because it is easy to measure voltage with a voltmeter. Connect negative lead of your voltmeter to ground or power source return line and you can measure the voltage on as many things that are accessible to your meter probe that you want. We used this many times when we were calculating current, voltage, or resistance in our labs. It served to be quite a useful shortcut so you don't have to keep using the equipment and wasting valuable time.
You can determine the current through a resistor by measuring the voltage on both sides of the resistor, calculating the difference and dividing it by the resistance the resistor. The resistance that is measured is usually written on the side of the resistor or on the box that it comes in. The resistance of a resistor can also be determined by the number, color, and order of stripes on the side of it. That is the most...

...Experiment No: EM-1 Title: Ohm’s Law, Meters, Resistivity
I Purpose:
The basic of simple electrical circuits and measurements is learned. Also, investigating the dependence of the resistance of a wire on its length, cross-sectional area, and the material of which it is made. By examining electrical resistance (R) through a metal conductor, the voltage (V) and current (I) through the conductor, the following principles will be demonstrated:
1.) Ohm’s Law
2.) Dependence of resistance (R) on the length (L), cross-sectional area (A) and electrical resistivity (ρ) and volt, (V).

...Georg Cantor
I. Georg Cantor
Georg Cantor founded set theory and introduced the concept of infinite numbers
with his discovery of cardinal numbers. He also advanced the study of
trigonometric series and was the first to prove the nondenumerability of the
real numbers. Georg Ferdinand Ludwig Philipp Cantor was born in St. Petersburg,
Russia, on March 3, 1845. His family stayed in Russia for eleven years until the
father's sickly health forced them to move to the more acceptable environment of
Frankfurt, Germany, the place where Georg would spend the rest of his life.
Georg excelled in mathematics. His father saw this gift and tried to push his
son into the more profitable but less challenging field of engineering. Georg
was not at all happy about this idea but he lacked the courage to stand up to
his father and relented. However, after several years of training, he became so
fed up with the idea that he mustered up the courage to beg his father to become
a mathematician. Finally, just before entering college, his father let Georg
study mathematics. In 1862, Georg Cantor entered the University of Zurich only
to transfer the next year to the University of Berlin after his father's death.
At Berlin he studied mathematics, philosophy and physics. There he studied under
some of the greatest mathematicians of the day including Kronecker and
Weierstrass....

...THEORIST: GEORG SIMMEL
1. Briefly summarize the theorist’s main assumptions/theories:
• SOCIAL FORMS-The individual is born with certain ways of thinking and feeling and most interactions are motivated by individual needs and desires.Encounters with others are molded to social forms in order to facilitate exchanges. These forms constitute society for simmel
• OBJECTIVE CULTURE-Culture becomes objective as its size diversity of components and complexity increase. It leads to anomie and the blasé attitude
• RELIGION AND GENDER-both gender and religiosity are natural states for humans. Each person has an impulse and a certain degree of religiousity. Religion objectifies the world by laying claim to such things such as love and faith. Gender is also a neccerscary attribute of human. Men naturally objectify themselves as they are motivated to produce. Women are naturally intergrated with all aspects of their being.
2. List terms/concepts and write a short definition:
Social forms- simmels basic perspective of social life. A patterned mode of interaction theough which people meet personal and group goals. Forms exist prior to interaction and provide rules and values that guide interaction
Socialbility-A social form that is purely social without purpose other than establishing and experiencing social connections with others
Exchange-The social form that determines value is based on sacrifice and scarcity both of which are determined by the...

George Simmel’s concept of
“FASHION”
One of the quotes of Georg Simmel’s “Fashion” says,
“Fashion, as noted above, is a product of class distinction and operates like a number of other forms, honor especially, the double function of which consists in revolving within a given circle and at the same time emphasizing it as separate from others. Just as the frame of a picture characterizes the work of art inwardly as a coherent, homogeneous, independent entity and at the same outwardly severs all direct relations with the surrounding space, just as the uniform energy of such forms cannot be expressed unless we determine the double effect, both inward and outward, so honor owed its character, and above all its moral rights, to the fact that the individual in his personal honor at the same time represents and maintains that of his social circle and his class. These moral rights, however, are frequently considered unjust by those without the pale. Thus fashion on the one hand signifies union with those in the same class, the uniformity of a circle characterized by it, and uno actu, the exclusion of all other groups”
(p. 308, as cited by Edles & Appelrouth, 2010)
Simmel explained fashion as giving each person a way to...

...What did Georg Simmel seek to demonstrate through his “formal” sociology?
Georg Simmel (1858 - 1918) was living in Berlin at a time when Sociology was beginning to form as a science, most notably with the work of Comte setting up the positivist methodology of studying society. In the intellectual world he was an outsider and struggled, becoming a full professor without a chair only in 1901.
Through formal sociology Simmel was proposing an alternative way of thinking to his contemporaries. I found Simmel’s writing very paradoxical. He purposes a more qualitative method of investigation rather then the quantitative method of positivists. Simmel together with Max Weber formed the anti-positivist a movement that opposed positivism. Positivism believed that truth is in scientific knowledge gained from empirical evidence. They would choose a subject matter, such as history or society, and set out to define empirical goals of their study. Simmel defined “general sociology” (positivism) subject matter as “the whole of historical life insofar as it is formed societally”. Simmel disagrees, through his discussion of sociology as a method he finds that this is sociology’s first “problem area” (Kurt Wolff, 1950), he never defines his subject matter but I feel that it is the “forms of sociation” that he is interested in.
Simmel, although he never gives us a strict guide book to his methodology and many times contradicts himself, was trying to form...
