# OHMS LAW

## Featuring Ohms Law!

I=V/R

In this equation it states that the current is equal to the voltage divided by the resistance. throughout this flyer i will demonstrate and provide proof of the correct equation above.

## fact\$

• It is generally applied only to direct current (DC) circuits, not alternating current (AC) circuits. In AC circuits, because the current is constantly changing, other factors such as capacitance and inductance must be taken into account.
• The concept behind Ohm's law was first explained by German Physicist Georg Ohm who the law is also named after.
• The tool for measuring volts in an electric circuit is called a voltmeter. An ohmmeter is used for measuring resistance. A multimeter can measure several functions including voltage, current, resistance, and temperature.

## making circuits

An electric circuit is formed when a conductive path is created to allow free electrons to continuously move. The movement of free electrons through the conductors of a circuit is called a current or flow.

## Closing

OHMS law is a pretty complex yet simple equation. i say complex because it deals with currents/ flow. this equation is a powerful predictor of the relationship between potential difference, current and resistance.
