- n. 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.
Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
- n. See law.
- n. physics Ohm's observation that the direct current flowing in an electrical circuit consisting only of resistances is directly proportional to the voltage applied.
GNU Webster's 1913
- n. (Elec.) the statement of the fact that the strength or intensity of an electrical current is directly proportional to the electro-motive force, and inversely proportional to the resistance of the circuit.
- n. electric current is directly proportional to voltage and inversely proportional to resistance; I = E/R
- From Georg Ohm, German physicist (Wiktionary)
