Volts (V.)
4 of 12
What is resistance?
The opposition to current flow.
5 of 12
What do current-p.d. graphs show?
To show how the current of a component varies with the p.d. across it.
6 of 12
What does a resistor's p.d.-current graph look like? What is this given that?
A straight line through the origin. Given that the resistor is at a constant temperature.
7 of 12
What is Ohm's law?
The current-p.d. graph for a resistor.
8 of 12
What is ohmic conductor?
Something that behaves in the same way as a resistor on a current-p.d. graph.
9 of 12
What does Ohm's law only apply to?
A resistor at a constant temperature.
10 of 12
At a constant temperature what happens to a component's resistacne, ragrdless of the direction of its current and p.d.?
It remains constant.
