Unformatted text preview: diagram symbol for an B O resistor is shown in Fig.2.7. Ohm's law expresses the voltage as a function of the current. However, expressing the curcnt as a function of the voltage also is convenient.

Therefore we may also descdbe an 8 O resistor as having a conductance of 0.125 nho, ((')....
