# Ohm’s Law Calculator

Ohm’s law states that the voltage (V) across the conductor is directly proportional to the current (I) flowing through the conductor and the resistance (R) of the circuit.

Ohm's Law is the relationship between voltage (V), current (I) in amperes, and resistance (R). Voltage refers to the potential difference between two points. The current is a carrier of an electrical charge, and the resistance is the opposition of the flow of an electric current. The SI unit of ohm’s law is the ohm(Ω).

There is another value that can be calculated by using ohm’s law, which is Power. The amount of energy that is transferred per unit of time is called power while the rate at which the work is being done in an electric circuit is called electric power. The SI unit of power is the watt(W).

## Formula of Ohm’s Law Calculator

The formula of Ohm’s Law is listed below:

V = I x R

Where,

V = Voltage

I = Current (in Amperes)

R = Resistance

Note:

### Formula of Power

The formula of power is listed below:

P = V x I

We can use the above formula when voltage and current are given. As we know ohm’s law,

V = I x R
I = V / R

Putting the above equation in power formula that is

P = V x I
P = V2 x R

### Examples

Example 1:

Consider a 4-ohm resistor in a circuit with a voltage drop from 220V to 50V across its terminals. What is the current through the resistor?

Given data

R = 4 Ω
V = 220V – 50V = 170V

To Find

I = ?

Solution

We know,

V = I x R

We need to find the value of the current so, we rearrange the equation

I = V / R

Putting the values, in the above equation we have

I = 170 / 4
I = 42.5 A

Example 2:

If we have the battery of voltage 20V and current 3A, find the consumed power.

Given data

V = 20V
I = 3A

To Find

P = ?

Solution

We know,

P = V x I

Putting the values, in the above equation we have

P = 20 x 3
P = 60 w
