on Thu Aug 16, 2018 12:58 pm

**Ohm's law**

It defines the relationship between the voltage, current, and resistance in an electric circuit.

**Where :**

V = Voltage in volts

also called electromotive force, is a quantitative expression of the potential difference in charge between two points in an electrical field.

I = Current in amps

is a flow of electrical charge carriers, usually electrons or electron-deficient atoms.

R = Resistance in ohms

is the opposition that a substance offers to the flow of electric current.

Below is a formula wheel for Ohm's Law relationships between P, I, V, and R. This is essentially what the calculator does, and is just a representation of the algebraic manipulation of the equations above. To use the wheel, choose the variable to solve for in the middle of the wheel, then use the relationship for the two known variables within the cross section of the circle.

The combination of Ohm's law and Joule's law gives us 12 formulas where 2 of the 4 variables are known. The wheel is a handy tool and memory jogger. To use it, simply choose the quadrant corresponding to the variable you want to calculate, then select the segment corresponding to the variables that you know the values of.

120 volts can kill ordinary, household, 120 volts AC electricity is dangerous and it can kill. Electrical current involves the flow of electrons and it's measured in amps.

No a current cannot kill an Individual, but a High Voltage can. No matter how high the current if the Voltage is Low, it won't make any pain on your body.

So what voltage can a person survive? Well if we’re considering death from heat, burning, and tampering with vital organs, it’s going to be between 100V and 10kV, as long as the power supply can actually produce the current that would kill you. An ideal, limitless power supply will always be deadly between 100V and 10kV, but in the real world there are always power limits.

This seems to imply that the human body can withstand any voltage, as long as the source of the potential difference (e.g. a difference in amount of charge) can’t produce currents high enough to burn you and disrupt your organs.

If we're going to make a movie or a series about the relation ship of Volts, Ampere and Ohm, It would totally make a good story, Volt is a good parent to Ampere who pushes and pursue him to attain his goal, and Ohm is a bastard who makes the difficulties of Volt and Ampere.

Three technologies are used to convert oil into electricity:

Conventional steam - Oil is burned to heat water to create steam to generate electricity.

Combustion turbine - Oil is burned under pressure to produce hot exhaust gases which spin a turbine to generate electricity.

Combined-cycle technology - Oil is first combusted in a combustion turbine, using the heated exhaust gases to generate electricity. After these exhaust gases are recovered, they heat water in a boiler, creating steam to drive a second turbine.

In an electric circuit, a nonlinear element or nonlinear device is an electrical element which does not have a linear relationship between current and voltage. A diode is a simple example. Examples of linear elements are resistors, capacitors, and air core inductors.Gel wrote:Admin! Is Resistor a linear device?

In the first version of the formula, I = V/R, Ohm's Law tells us that the electrical current in a circuit can be calculated by dividing the voltage by the resistance. In other words, the current is directly proportional to the voltage and inversely proportional to the resistance.neil wrote:Is resistance directly proportional to voltage?

The current required to carry a given power decrease when you increase the voltage because the power is the product of the current with the voltage and power factor. No, the Ohm's law is not violated since Ohm's law relates the voltage across between the ends of a conductor to the current through the conductor.neil wrote:Why does current decrease when voltage increases?

If the electric potential difference between two locations is 3 volts, then one coulomb of charge will gain 3 joules of potential energy when moved between those two locations. Because electric potential difference is expressed in units of volts, it is sometimes referred to as the voltage.neil wrote:What is difference between potential and voltage?

Using Ohms law, you would multiply amperage times volts to get watts. For instance a 12 volt circuit drawing 2 amps would consume 24 watts of power (12*2=24). A 60 watt light bulb powered by 120 volts in a house would draw .5 amp of current (60/120= .5).neil wrote:How many watts are in a Volt?

In ohm's law ,V is directly proportinal to I keeping resistance constant. Thus V=IR. It means in order to increase current through the resistance voltage applied should be increased. However in power equation, P=VI such that V is inversely proportional to I. Here power is kept constant.
