Lesson 1: Ohm’s Law Equation
Help Lesson 1: Ohm’s Law Equation The relationship between voltage, amperage, and resistance can be expressed in a simple equation. This equation is known as Ohm’s law. Ohm’s law is represented by the equation where volts = current × resistance. This equation often simplified into the expression V = I × R where V = Volts, I = Current, and R = Resistance. Each quantity is expressed in units. V is expressed in volts. I is expressed in amps, and R is expressed in ohms. Next Information

Lesson 2: Solving for I In many situations the voltage is nearly constant. Taking voltage (V) readings is easy because these readings can be taken with the circuit energized and ready to use. Using simple algebraic concepts Ohm’s law can be rearranged so we can solve for resistance (R) or current (I). I can be calculated using the formula I = V ÷ R. Next

Lesson 3: Calculating I It is often practical to calculate I using Ohm’s law. In order to calculate I, V and R must be known. V is determined to be 12 volts using a voltmeter. R is determined to be 3 ohms using an Ohm meter. I can be calculated using the formula I = V ÷ R. Rewritten for this case the formula is I = 12 ÷ 3. I is 4 amps. Next

Lesson 4: Solving for R Using simple algebraic concepts Ohm’s law can be rearranged so we can solve for resistance (R). This is another case of rearranging the formula for Ohm’s law using simple algebraic principals. To solve for resistance use the formula: R = V ÷ I Next

Lesson 5: Calculating R It is often practical to calculate R using Ohm’s law. In order to calculate R, V and I must be known. V is determined to be 12 volts using a voltmeter. I is determined to be 2 amps using an Ohm meter. I can be calculated using the formula R = V ÷ I. Rewritten for this case the formula is R = 12 ÷ 6. R is 2 ohms. Next

Lesson 6: Calculating V It is possible to calculate V using Ohm’s law.
In order to calculate V, R and I must be known. R is determined to be 4 ohms using a voltmeter. I is determined to be 3 amps using an Ohm meter. V can be calculated using the formula V = I × R. Rewritten for this case the formula is V = 3 ÷ 4. V is 12 volts. Next
