# Electric Resistance

Resistance \(\:(R)\:\) is the ability to resist or prevent the flow of current. In order to overcome the resistance and get the current to flow a higher voltage will be required. Resistance is measured in Ohms, represented by \(R\) and has a symbols \(\Omega\).

Ohm is a unit of resistance. A constant current of one ampere produces a force of one volt.

## Electric Resistance (Ohm) formulas

\(\large{ Ohms = \frac{Volts}{Amps} = R = \frac{V}{I} }\) | |

\(\large{ Ohms = \frac{Volts^2}{Watts} = R = \frac{V^2}{P} }\) | |

\(\large{ Ohms = \frac{Watts}{Amps^2} = R = \frac{P}{I^2} }\) |

### Where:

\(\large{ R }\) = resistance

\(\large{ V }\) = volt

\(\large{ I }\) = current

\(\large{ P }\) = power
