esistance Resistance y In general, materials resist electric current. This property is termed resistance defined as l ρ = resistivity of the material R A ρ = l = length A = cross-section area R y We model the resistance of a material using an element known as a resistor R.M. Buehrer - Spring 2010 3

hm’s Law Ohms Law y Ohm determined that the voltage ( v ) across a resistor is proportional to the current ( i ) y This proportion is defined as Resistance R vi R = v R = R.M. Buehrer - Spring 2010 4 Georg Ohm 1787-1854 i
