Ohm's Law

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