Proposed by George Ohm, and is the relationship between Voltage, Current and Resistance.

Voltage (V) = Current (I) X Resistance (R)

Ohms Law 2013 International Technology and Engineering Educators Association, STEMCenter for Teaching and Learning Foundations of Technology

2013 International Technology and Engineering Educators Association, STEMCenter for Teaching and Learning Foundations of Technology

Ohms Law is commonly expressed using the triangle found below where:

Voltage (V) = Current (I) X Resistance (R)

Current (I) = _Voltage (V)__ Resistance (R)

Resistance (R) = _Voltage (V)_ Current (I)

Ohms Law 2013 International Technology and Engineering Educators Association, STEMCenter for Teaching and Learning Foundations of Technology

Voltage (V) is the electrical force that moves electrons through a conductor.

Voltage is electrical pressure that pushes electrons.

Voltage 2013 International Technology and Engineering Educators Association, STEMCenter for Teaching and Learning Foundations of Technology

Current (I) is the quantity or flow rate of electrons moving past a point.

Current flow is also known as amperage, or amps for short.

Current 2013 International Technology and Engineering Educators Association, STEMCenter for Teaching and Learning Foundations of Technology

Resistance (R) is the force that reduces or stops the flow of electrons and opposes voltage.

In a Series circuit, the current through two or more resistors is the same, and the circuit is connected in a series.

The total resistance of the collection is the sum of individual resistances.

The total resistance of the collection is the sum of the individual resistances.

The Equivalent Resistance of R1, R2 and R3 when connected in series is:

R = R1 + R2 + R3
