LOWELL, Ark., March 25, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Ohm's law is a simple yet vital formula that explains the relationship between voltage, current, and resistance.
"When understood properly Ohm's law can really help understand the troubleshooting process," said Rylar Masco, Purkeys Sales and Service Engineer.
It is represented in the equation voltage equals current multiplied by resistance (V = I x R). Voltage is measured in volts, current is measured in amps, and resistance is measured in ohms in this equation.
Though the equation is simple, the numerous applications of its principles are sometimes difficult to recall. Knowing this, Purkeys developed a "cheat sheet" listing the various symbols and formulas to assist with troubleshooting and diagnosing electrical problems.
"The applications of Ohm's law are very wide," said Dale Henningson, Purkeys Chief Engineer. "By understanding and properly applying Ohm's law a technician can diagnose components such as relays, light bulbs, switches, etc. much faster."
