If the transconductance is 2, then there is a 2 amp change is Drain-Source Current for every 2 volt of Gate-Source voltage change. and so on, this with transconductance expressed in Siemens, which is the inverse of ohms.

Then all transconductances are = ?
I think if gm=2 then you get a 4amp change for 2volt change

Yeah, but Siemen sounds so... um... biological. I rather liked it when the unit really was the inverse of ohms; mhos. But alas, we've lost our mhojo.

According to Cyclotronguy, this no longer exists, and in fact they have renamed a number of the higher elements. This probably explains why you don't see Kentium on the periodic table of the elements.

i still think this ain't right

Hehehe. Yeah, but many of them are named after persons. Such as Lawrencium (after E. O. Lawrence), Nobelium (after Alfred Nobel), Mendelevium (after Dmitri Mendeleev), etc.

Guess we just have to wait 'til someone named Kent becomes worthy of such an honor.
