# What does Volts, Amps, Ohms, and Watts mean?

Voltage is measured in volts, current is measured in amps and resistance is measured in ohms

## What is Voltage?

Voltage represents electrical pressure.Voltage represents the electrical potential difference between two points in a circuit. It is the force that pushes electrical charge (current) through a conductor. Voltage is analogous to the pressure in a water pipe. It is measured in volts (V).

## What is Current?

Current represents the flow of electrical charge,Current is the flow of electrical charge through a conductor. It is the rate at which electric charge passes through a given point in the circuit. Current is analogous to the flow of water in a pipe. It is measured in amperes or amps (A).

## What is Resistance?

Resistance represents opposition to the current flow.Resistance is the opposition to the flow of electric current in a material. It is determined by the material’s properties and physical dimensions. Resistance is analogous to the restriction in a water pipe. It is measured in ohms (Ω).

## What is wattage?

Wattage represents the rate of energy transfer in a circuit.Wattage is a measure of the rate at which electrical energy is consumed or produced in a circuit. It indicates the amount of power transferred per unit of time

These quantities are interrelated by Ohm’s Law and the power formula, allowing engineers to understand and analyze the behavior of electrical circuits.
