# Ohms Law

## Ohms Law is therelationship between the

current (I) flowing through resistance (R)
andthe potential drop acrossit (V).
Ohms Law states that the voltage or electric
potential indirection proportional to the
product of the current and the resistance
where current isin Amps (A), voltage
involts (v), and resistance in Ohms
().Therefore, the relationship: expresses
Ohms law as

Ohms Law

## Ohms Law can be applied to any network

(DC, AC, digital and microwaves
circuits) at any time frame.
It can be applied for over a period of time
or for instantaneous responses using
equation: Cause
Effect
Opposition

## Effect is the flow of charge or current

Cause is the potential difference or
voltage between two points
Opposition is the resistance
encountered

## Cause Potential Difference

(Amperes,

The greater the voltage across a resistor, the
more the current and the more the resistance.
Current is proportional to the applied voltage
& inversely proportional to the resistance.
Using math voltage and resistance can be
found

Defining the polarities

## For any resistor in any network, the

direction of the current through
a resistor will define the polarity
of the voltage drop across the
resistor.

4.3 Power
poweris the rate at whichenergyis transferred,
used, or transformed.
Electric poweris the rate at whichelectric
energyis transferred by anelectric circuit. It is
the rate of doingwork, measured inwatts, and
represented by the letterP.
Theunit of power is thewatt, onejouleper
second.
1 watt (W) = 1 joule/second (J/s)
Power is P = W/t with the energy (W) measured in
joules & in time t in seconds.
1 horsepower (hp) 746 watts
Equation of power delivered to or
absorbed by an electrical system
From the equation P = W/t we can derive
different equations for power by direct
substitution of Ohms Law.

4.4 Energy
Electricalenergyis the presence and flow of
anelectric charge. This charge can be
transferred between bodies using direct
contact with a conductive material like a wire.
For power, which is the rate of doing work, to
produce an energy conversion of any form it
must be over a period of time.
Energy lost or gained by any system is
determined by W = Pt
Power is measure in watts (or joules per
second) & time in seconds, so the unit of
energy is wattsecond or joule.

Since wattsecond is quantity too small so the
watthour and kilo-watthour where defined.

Plotting Ohms Law
A plot of voltage vs. current yields a
straight line whose slope is the
resistance of the material.
Current (I) is represented by the
vertical axis (ordinate) and voltage
by the horizontal axis (abscissa)
Plotting Ohms Law
Vertical axis is in amperes and the
horizontal axis in volts
Plotting Ohms Law cont
Consider a point on the plot where v = 20v
and I = 4A. The resulting resistance is R =
V/I = 20V/2A = 10.
For comparison a 1 and a 10 resistors were
plotted, the less the resistance the steeper
the slope of the curve
Relating Ohms law to a basic
straight-line equation

The slope is = 1
divided by the
resistance value
The greatest the
resistance the less the
slope
