What is Ohm’s Law?

### Ohm’s Law Statement:

**Ohm's law**can be stated as, the ratio of potential difference (V) between any two points on a conductor to the current (I) flowing between them, is constant, provided the temperature of the conductor does not change.

### Ohm’s Law Formula:

In other words, V/I= constant

or V/I= R

where R is the
resistance of the conductor between the two points considered.

Put in another way, it
simply means that provided R is kept constant, current is directly proportional
to the potential difference across the ends of a conductor.

However, this linear
relationship between V and I does not apply to all non-metallic conductors.

For
example, for silicon carbide, the relationship is given by V = KI

^{m}where K and m are constants and m is less than unity.**Ohm’s Law**also does not apply to non-linear devices such as Zener diodes and voltage-regulator (VR) tubes.
