From: "Keith Rowland"
During his experiments which led to his formulation of "Ohm's Law," Georg
Simon Ohm referred to the current in a circuit as "intensity," hence the "I"
which is still the usual designator for current.

"V" is the initial of another early experimenter in the field, Alexandre
Volta, as also no doubt everyone knows.

******Which raises another interesting point,why isn't Ohms law written as
A(Ampere) = V(Volt) divided by  O   (for Ohm)??
 Why was "Omega" adopted?
