### Ohm's Law

• The current flowing through metallic conductor is directly proportional to potential difference across it, provided that the temperature and other physical conditions remains same.
• If I is current passes through a conductor and V is potential difference across its terminal, according to ohm’s law

I α V ( constant temperature )

OR

V α I

( V / I ) = Constant

V = IR

Where R = Constant, it is called as resistance at given temperature

### Resistance

• It is a property of conductor to oppose the flow of current through it. The SI unit of resistance is ohm.
• One ohm = One volt / One ampere
• According to ohm’s law

V = IR

I = V / R

• Therefore we can say that

I α V  …… ( 1 )

and I α ( 1 / R ) …… ( 2 )

• The current passes through conductor is directly proportional to potential difference across it.
• The current passes through conductor is inversely proportional to resistance of metallic conductor.
