# Ohm's law

## Definitions

### from The American Heritage® Dictionary of the English Language, 4th Edition

• 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.

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

### from the GNU version of the Collaborative International Dictionary of English

• n. 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.

### from The Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia

• n. See law.

• n. electric current is directly proportional to voltage and inversely proportional to resistance; I = E/R
