An online calculator to calculate the current passing through a resistor using Ohm's law and the power dissipated in a resistor given the voltage across the resistor.
This calculator also calculates the voltage and current through a resistor given the power dissipated by this resistor.

Ohm's law expresses the relationship between the current I passing through a resistor and the voltage V across that resistor of resistsnce R as follows:

V = R I , I = V / R or R = V / I

The rate at which heat is dissipated in a resistor is called power P and is given in terms of current I and voltage V by:

P = V I

Using Ohm's law above, we can rewrite the power P as

P = R I ^{ 2} , P = V ^{ 2} / R
