34
**A load is added The load provides a path for electrons**

There is still high resistance to flow But it is no longer infinite resistance © 2005 Refrigeration Training Services - E1#1 Atoms,Electron,Ohms Law,Resistance v1.0

35
**But there is still High Resistance**

A small load provides a path for some of the electrons But there is still High Resistance © 2005 Refrigeration Training Services - E1#1 Atoms,Electron,Ohms Law,Resistance v1.0

36
**More load is added Less resistance More electron flow**

37
**The resistance is lower**

Lower resistance means more electrons, or current flow. The resistance is lower © 2005 Refrigeration Training Services - E1#1 Atoms,Electron,Ohms Law,Resistance v1.0

38
**Low or no resistance can be bad**

The lower the resistance, The higher the electron flow If the current flow is out of control, The circuit is overloaded © 2005 Refrigeration Training Services - E1#1 Atoms,Electron,Ohms Law,Resistance v1.0
