Ohm'slaw

Ohm'slaw
Ohm's law (ōmz) n.
The law stating that the direct current flowing in a conductor is directly proportional to the potential difference between its ends. It is usually formulated as V = IR, where V is the potential difference, or voltage, I is the current, and R is the resistance of the conductor.
  [After Ohm, Georg Simon.]
