# Electronics/Ohm's Law

Jump to: navigation, search

Ohm's law describes the relationship between voltage, current, and resistance.

Voltage and current are related such that voltage is equal to current times resistance:

${\displaystyle V=I\cdot R}$

Common units used in electronics calculations are:

V = mA × kΩ

the current going through any point in the circuit, I, will be equal to the voltage V divided by the resistance R.


In this example, the voltage across the resistor, V, will be equal to the supplied current, I, times the resistance R.

SUMMARY:

V=I times R
I=V divided by R
R=V divided by I
