    Ohms Law defines the relationship between Voltage, Current and Resistance - as described in detail by this article. The tool on this page allows you to enter two known vaules and then calculate the third.
    • E (or V) = Voltage
    • I = Current
    • R = Resistance
    This calculator is based on the following simple equation:

    Which therefore means the following conditions are also true:

    In electric circuits, power is a function of both voltage and current:​

    Using algebra again to manipulate the formulae, we can take our original power formula and modify it for applications where we don't know both voltage and current:
    If we only know voltage (E) and resistance (R):

    If we only know current (I) and resistance (R):
