Increasing V causes more I to flow in the bulb. I = V R R I V flow = pressure opposition amperes = volts ohms
There are three forms of Ohm’s Law: I = V/R V = IR R = V/I Where: I = Current V = Voltage R = Resistance V I R

Units of Voltage Submultiple units of voltage are: millivolt (mV) 1-thousandth of a Volt or V microvolt ( V) 1-millionth of a Volt or V Multiple units of voltage are: kilovolt (kV) 1-thousand Volts or 10 3 V megavolt (MV) 1-million Volts or 10 6 V The basic unit of voltage is the Volt (V).
Units of Current The basic unit of current is the Ampere (A). Submultiple units of current are: milliampere (mA) 1-thousandth of an Ampere or A microvolt ( ) 1-millionth of an Ampere or A
Units of Resistance Multiple units of resistance are: kilohm (k ) 1-thousand Ohms or 10 3 Megohm (M ) 1-million Ohms or 10 6 The basic unit of resistance is the Ohm ( ).
When V is constant: I decreases as R increases I increases as R decreases Examples: 16 V 4 4 A 16 V 8 2 A If R doubles, I is reduced to half. 16 A 16 V 1 If R is reduced to ¼, I increases by 4. This is known as an inverse relationship.
Volts Amperes 2 + _ 0 to 9 Volts Fixed resistors have linear volt-ampere relationships. 2 1 4 The smaller the resistor, the steeper the slope.

Power is the time rate of doing work. The basic unit of power is the Watt (W). Submultiple units of power are: milliwatt (mW) 1-thousandth of a Watt or W microwatt ( W) 1-millionth of a Watt or W Multiple units of power are: kilowatt (kW) 1-thousand Watts or 10 3 W megawatt (MW) 1-million Watts or 10 6 W
The rate of work can be found by multiplying potential difference times flow. 1 Volt = 1 Joule 1 coulomb 1 Ampere = 1 coulomb 1 second Power = Volts x Amps 1 Joule 1 coulomb 1 second x 1 Joule 1 second = Power (1 Watt) = and First, recall that: The base unit of power is the Watt or Joule/second.
The amount of work (energy) can be found by multiplying power times time. The amount of work (energy) is used for calculating electric bills. The kilowatt-hour is the billing unit.
To calculate electric cost, start with the power: Convert to kilowatts: Multiply by hours: (Assume it runs half the day) Multiply by rate: (Assume a rate of $0.08) An air conditioner operates at 240 volts and 20 amperes. The power is P = V x I = 240 x 20 = 4800 watts watts = 4.8 kilowatts energy = 4.8 kW x 12 hours = 57.6 kWh cost = 57.6 x $0.08 = $4.61 per day
Combining Ohm’s Law and the power formula V = IR P = VI P = (IR)I = I 2 R Substitute IR for V to obtain: Substitute V/R for I to obtain: P = V x V R V2V2 R = V R I =

Electrical Shock Hazard When possible, work only on circuits that have the power shut off. If the power must be on, use only one hand. Hand-to-hand shocks can be very dangerous!
Open and Short Circuits An open circuit has zero current flow. 16 V 0 A 16 V 0 excessive I A short circuit has excessive current flow. I = 16 V 0 = undefined As R approaches 0, I approaches .
