noun

Ohm's law is a law of science that states that the current in a Direct Current (DC) circuit is directly proportional to the difference between its ends.

An example of Ohm's law is what an electrician would use when determining a problem with an electrical circuit.

## Ohm's law

Elec. a law which states that the current in a DC circuit is directly proportional to the applied voltage and inversely proportional to the resistance

Origin of Ohm's law

noun

The law stating that the direct current flowing in a conductor is directly proportional to the potential difference between its ends. It is usually formulated as

*V*=*IR,*where*V*is the potential difference, or voltage,*I*is the current, and*R*is the resistance of the conductor.Origin of Ohm's law

After Georg Simon**Ohm**.

## ohm-s-law

Noun

(*uncountable*)

- (physics) Ohm's observation that the direct current flowing in an electrical circuit consisting only of resistances is directly proportional to the voltage applied.

Origin

From Georg Ohm, German physicist
