He observed the relationship among current (I), voltage (V) and resistance (R ). Definition of ohms law. Ohms law indicated that the electrical current in a circuit is directly proportional to the applied voltage and is inversely proportional to the resistance in a circuit at a constant temperature. Graph explain ohms law 3. Definition of electric current. An electric current is a flow of electric charge. In electric circuits this charge is often carried by moving electrons in a wire. It can also be carried by ions in an electrolyte. The unit of electric current is amps or amperes and is represented by the letter A. Definition of voltage Voltage is the pressure from an electrical circuit’s power source that pushes charged electrons (current) through a conducting loop, enabling them to do work such as illuminating a light Voltage is represented by the letter Vor E Definition of resistance. • Resistance is an electrical quantity that measures how the device or material reduces the electric current flow through it. • The resistance is measured in units of ohms (Ω). The symbol to represent resistance is R. The Formula for ohms law • V=IR • I=V/R • R = V/I Where: V - is the voltage that is measured in volts (V) I – is the current that is measured in Ampears (A). R – is the resistance that is measured in ohms (Ω). Ohms law calculations •Suppose that a circuit has 1,000 Ω of resistance with 150 V of applied voltage. What is the current ? Solution •I = V / R •I = 150 / 1000 Ω • = 0.15A Definition of electric power. •Electrical power is the rate at which electrical energy is used. The unit of electrical power is watt which is named after the scientist James Watt, and is represented by the symbol W. •There are three basic formulas to find the Electric power in a circuit. • P = IV • P = I2 R • P = V2/R Calculations • If a circuit has 50 milli -amperes of current flow and an applied voltage of 10V, how much power does the circuit dissipate? Using the basic formula for power: solution • P = IV • P = 10V ×50mA Calculations • If a circuit has a voltage of 75 V and a resistance of 15 Ω , how much power does the circuit dissipate? Using the basic formula for power: Class Activity • Instructions: Answer the following questions on a separate sheet of paper. Show all work and formulas. V = I×R • 1.
