Ohms Law
A law that states current/ voltage and resistance are mathematically related
Resistance
The opposition to the flow of electrical charge
Resistance Formula
R=V/I
Current
The flow of charge, Rate at which charges pass a given point
Current Formula
I=V/R
Voltage
the amount of potential energy between two points (difference in charge)
Voltage Formula
V=IR
