The **Ohm's Law Calculator** computes power(watts), potential (volts), resistance (ohms) and current (amps) based on the three variants of **Ohm's Law**. The calculator has automatic unit conversions of inputs and outputs.

**Power:** (watts, milliwatts, kilowatts, horsepower)

**Power (P) = I • V**: This computes the power (watts) as a function of current (amps) and potential (volts).**Power (P) = R • I²**: This computes the power (watts) as a function of current (amps) and resistance (ohms).**Power (P) = V² / R**: This computes the power (watts) as a function of potential (volts) and resistance (ohms).

**Potential:** (volts, millivolts)

**Volts (V) = I • R**: This computes the potential (volts) as a function of current (amps) and resistance (ohms).**Volts (V) = P / I**: This computes the potential (volts) as a function of power (watts) and current (amps).**Volts(V) = ?(P • R)**: This computes the potential (volts) as a function of power (watts) and resistance (ohms).

**Resistance:** (ohms, milliohms, kiloohms)

**Resistance (R) = V²/P**: This computes the resistance (ohms) as a function of potential (volts) and power (watts).**Resistance (R) = P / I²**: This computes the resistance (ohms) as a function of power (watts) and current (amps).**Resistance (R) = V / I**: This computes the resistance (ohms) as a function of potential (volts) and current (amps).

**Current: **(amps, milliamps, microamps, gilberts)

**Current (I) = V / R**: This computes the current (amps) as a function of potential (volts) and resistance (ohms).**Current (I) = P / V**: This computes the current (amps) as a function of the power (watts) and the potential (volts).**Current (I) = ?(P/R)**: This computes the current (amps) as a function of the power (watts) and the resistance (ohms).

**Ohm's Law** states that the electric current through an electric conductor between two points is directly proportional to the potential difference (voltage) across the two points. As an equation this is simply **I = V/R**.

Ohm's Law established relations between **potential (voltage), current, resistance **and** power**. See wheel graphic.

The law was named after the German physicist Georg Ohm.
