Electricity is a science, and electricians, like the practitioners of any science, have an argot all their own. An argot of pure esoterica, decipherable only by the initiate. But like most jargon, it is easy to learn if it's approached in a systematic manner. In the case of electrical terms of measurement, most of the units that you will need to be cognizant of build on a handful of basic units and it is those basic units that we will be discussing today.

The Ohm's Law was named after the German physicist, Georg Ohm who first introduced the formula in 1827. In its most basic form the Ohms Law states that a current flowing in a circuit is directly proportional to the circuits voltage and varies inversely with the circuits resistance. In other words, double the voltage while keeping the resistance the same and the current will be doubled. On the other hand, double the resistance while keeping the voltage the same and the current will be reduced by ...
