What is Ohm's law? Explain how it is used to define the unit of resistance.
According to Ohm's law, the current (I) flowing through a wire is directly proportional to the potential difference (V) across it, provided its temperature remains the same.
Thus I α V.
V / I = Constant = R
V = IR
Here R is the resistance.
The unit of resistance is ohm (â„¦).
One ohm (â„¦) is the resistance of a conductor when a potential difference of one volt is applied to its ends and a current of one ampere flows through it.
