10% Tolerance

Initially, X was defined like this

X = stringReverse( Ohm3 )

Later, they changed X to

X = 240px-Ernst_Werner_von_Siemens = 1 /( Ohm3)

What is X?

Answer:

SI Unit for Conductance.

First it was Mho, named after Ohm. Later they changed it to Siemens.

Conductance in Siemens = 1/ Resistance = 1 / Ohms

    X=Mho=Siemens.

    It sounds like you want the answer to be mho(℧) but the Si unit for the mho is the siemens (S).
    Personally, I was brought up on Mhos.

    mho / siemen, which sounds curiously like ‘more s*men’, which is just the sort of phrase that will bring you search engine traffic. heh.

    Mod Comment: Dibyo, that is very hilarious! srsly! but the damn office internet filters don’t like these words and they block bb out. So, I have censored the word. Don’t mind :)

    ohm
    siemens


  5. emrohit

    ohman! :)

    X is electric conductance. Previously it was measured in mho. Now it measured in siemens.

    Earlier Mho
    Now Siemens.
    SI Unit of Electrical Conductance.


  7. Mihir Rege

    Electric Conductance
    Mho and siemens


  8. vijay

    siemens= 1/ kappa


  9. Sourya

    the first one is George Simon Ohm.
    Mho
    Now Siemens…….


  10. sidsen

    seimens is ohm inverse


  11. initially: X = stringreverse(ohm) = mho

    now: X = siemens = 1/(ohm)

    Unit of conductance – Mho vs Siemens.


  13. joe

    Mho. Other guy is siemens


  14. madhur

    X= stringReverse(ohm) = mho= siemens=1/ohm


  15. Ohm’s law simon ohm


  16. Gautam Dn(RV)

    x is conductance


  17. Nakul

    Conductance. Very well framed :)

    1 Siemens = 1/ (mho).
    nice question, especially the clue.


  19. xtremevarun

    x=mhos
    guy is georg ohms…
    conductance now called siemens

    X is Siemens, the SI derived unit of electric conductance, which was first known as mho (ohm reversed), and later changed to Siemens (defined as 1/R) after Ernst Werner von Siemens.

    Mho, unit of electrical conductance.

    Initially strrev(Ohm), now called the siemens.


  24. conductance,mho(mho=siemens=1/ohm)

    Unit of electrical conductance – Mho earlier, now Siemens. Nicely framed question :)


  26. Shubham

    X= Siemens


  27. u2001137

    SI unit of conductance


  28. Parijat

    X is Siemens(the SI unit of conductance) named after Ernst Werner von Siemens.
    And also X = 1/(Ohm) named after George Simon Ohm.


  29. Mho! Siemens and Ohm!


  30. SI Unit of conductance. Initially it was Mho, later it was Siemen.
