First of all, let's get the units of measurement correct, which are kilohms (not 'kil ohms'), megohms(not 'magha ohms'), milliohms, and picohms(not 'pico ohms').

Resistors are generally rated in ohms, kilohms, and megohms because, generally, these are the values most widely needed in practical applications.

Q: Why does generally resistors are in kilo ohms or megha ohms why not in milli or micro or pico ohm?

A milli volt would be mV

uA, means Micro-Amp or 1 millionth of an Ampere mA, means milli-Amp or 1 thousandth of an Ampere. An Ampere is a unit measurement of electric current flowing in a circuit.

millivoltmeter has more ressistance.By ohm's law V=IR. if we assume that I is constant then V proportional to R as the millivoltmeter has more voltage as compared to micro-voltmeter , the milli voltmeter has greater resistance

The metric units between milli and micro are centi (0.01) and deci (0.1).

The next smallest prefix from milli- is micro-. Milli- denotes thousandths, micro- denotes millionths.

Yes, Micro is a metric unit. It is between milli and nano.

"milli-" = 1/1,000 (thousandth) "micro-" = 1/1,000,000 (millionth) "nano-" = 1/1,000,000,000 (billionth) "pico-" = 1/1,000,000,000,000 (millionth of a millionth, "micro micro-")

Centi- = one hundredth Milli- = one thousandth Micro- = one millionth

Mega, kilo, milli, and micro are prefixes used in the metric system to denote multiples or fractions of a base unit. Mega represents one million, kilo represents one thousand, milli represents one thousandth, and micro represents one millionth.

milli is 10^3 bigger then micro. milli is 10^6 bigger then nano. milli is 10^9 bigger then pico.

1000! micro = 1 / 1,000,000 (one millionth) = 0.000 001 milli = 1 / 1,000 (one thousandth) = 0.001 To get from micro to milli you have to multiply by 1000.
