Ohm's Law is a fundamental principle in physics that describes the relationship between voltage, current, and resistance in an electrical circuit. It is named after the German physicist Georg Simon Ohm, who formulated this law in 1827.

The mathematical expression of Ohm's Law is given by the formula:

V = I * R

Where:

- V is the voltage across the circuit (measured in volts, V)
- I is the current flowing through the circuit (measured in amperes, A)
- R is the resistance of the circuit (measured in ohms, Ω)

Ohm's Law states that the voltage across a conductor is directly proportional to the current flowing through it, and inversely proportional to the resistance of the conductor. In other words, if the resistance remains constant, the voltage and current will change in the same direction. If the resistance changes, the voltage and current will change in opposite directions.

Ohm's Law is essential for analyzing and designing electrical circuits, and it is used in various practical applications such as electronic devices, power distribution systems, and telecommunications.

- Understand the units: Familiarize yourself with the units of measurement for voltage (volts), current (amperes), and resistance (ohms).
- Practice with examples: Work through sample problems involving Ohm's Law to solidify your understanding of the relationship between voltage, current, and resistance.
- Use the formula triangle: Some students find it helpful to use a visual aid, such as a formula triangle, to rearrange the Ohm's Law formula and solve for different variables.
- Real-world connections: Look for real-world examples of Ohm's Law in action, such as household electrical circuits, to reinforce the practical significance of this principle.
