Electrical resistance For many materials V = IR Units of resistance = Vs/C = Ohms (sym: Ω ) Where the resistance R depends on resistivity ρ and geometry, for example R = ρ (L/A) Power dissipated in resistors P=I 2 R=V 2 /R Current Voltage I = (1/R)*V Symbol for resistors:
Table of the combinations of: V = IR and P = IV EE Belt Buckle…

Other materials… Ohm’s law is not a good approximation for the conductivity of some materials. For these the relation between I and V can be more complex Semiconductor diodes are an example An example: a “diode”, or one way current device. Demo: negative temperature coefficient
