a material39s opposition to the flow of electric current measured in ohms Electrical tension or voltage is the difference of electrical potential between two points of an electrical or electronic circuit expressed in volts Electrical Current is a flow of electrical charge carriers usually electrons or holes electron deficient atoms the standard unit is the ampere Ohm s Law Ohm39s Law defines the relationships between V voltage 1 current and R resistance One ohm is the resistance value through which one volt will maintain a current of one ampere VlxR Power in Electrical Circuits Electrical Power P in a circuit is the amount of energy that is absorbed or produced within the circuit The unit of measurement is the Watt W A source of energy such as a voltage will produce or deliver power while the connected load absorbs it P is the product of voltage multiplied by the current P V x I By using Ohm39s law and substituting for V I and R the formula for electrical power can be found as
