Ohm's law

 (ōmz)
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.

[After Georg Simon Ohm.]

Ohm's law

n
(General Physics) the principle that the electric current passing through a conductor is directly proportional to the potential difference across it, provided that the temperature remains constant. The constant of proportionality is the resistance of the conductor

Ohm's law

A law stating that the current in an electric circuit is equal to the voltage divided by the resistance. The current increases as the voltage increases, but decreases as the resistance increases.
