# Ohm's Law

### From Conservapedia

**Ohm's law** is a mathematical relationship of three variables in an electronic circuit containing a resistive element. It states that the voltage across a resistive element is equal to the current passing through the resistive element times the resistance of the resistive element. The law is named after German physicist Georg Ohm, who wrote a treatise on this relationship in 1827.

In mathematical terms, this is written as:

*V*=*I***R*

Where

- V: Voltage across resistive element
- I: Current through resistive element
- R: Resistance of resistive element
