- noun (written asthe physical principle that an electric current is directly proportional to the
*Ohmâ€™s law*)__voltage__and__inversely proportional__to the resistance

- A law stating that the current the flowing through a
__DC circuit__is directly proportional to the__voltage__, and inversely proportional to the resistance. It may be expressed as follows:=*I*, where*E/R*is the current,*I*is the voltage, and*E*is the resistance. For an*R*__AC circuit__, the relationship would be:=*I*, where*E/X*is the current,*I*is the voltage, and*E*is the impedance. When a conductor or material obeys this law, it is said to be*X*__ohmic__. Ohm's law does not apply to all conductors of__electricity__
