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
