# Electricity

### Voltage, Current and Resistance By Zaikeria Patha

## Voltage

**Def: Potential difference in electrical charge between the two different areas in a circuit, is the force that pushes the current along through the circuit**

## Resistance

**Def: The difficulty an electric faces to pass through an object**

## Current

**Flow of electrons. Can only flow in a closed loop.**

## How These Forces Work Together

**The relationship between voltage, current, and resistance is described by Ohm's law. The equation,**

*I*=*V*/*R*, tells us that the current,*I*, flowing through a circuit is directly proportional to the voltage,*V*, and inversely proportional to the resistance,*R*. In other words, if we increase the voltage, then the current will increase. But if we increase the resistance, then the current will decrease.## A Real Life Example

**If the voltage doesn't change, but the resistance lowers, then there is less current to pass through. (As shown in the picture below)**
