# Ohm's Law

From Conservapedia

(Redirected from 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:

Where

- Voltage across resistive element
- Current through resistive element
- Resistance of resistive element
