Ohm’s Law – Circuits | Current | Resistance

Topics

  • Ohm’s Law
  • Circuits
  • Current
  • Resistance
  • Voltage

Description

See how the equation form of Ohm’s law relates to a simple circuit. Adjust the voltage and resistance, and see the current change according to Ohm’s law.

Sample Learning Goals

  • Predict how current will change when resistance of the circuit is fixed and voltage is varied.
  • Predict how current will change when voltage of the circuit is fixed and resistance is varied.
