**Electrical Current terms**

**The three main terms used in electricity are;**

**(1) Ampere or Amp, which denotes the measure of current flow.**

**(2) Volt, denoting the measure of electrical force or pressure.**

**(3) Ohm, a measure of electrical resistance**.

The relationship of these is expressed in Ohm's Law which states that Volts = Amps x Ohms.

By knowing any two of these parameters, the third can also be calculated thus:

- Volts = Amps x Ohms Ohms = Volts divided by Amps Amps = Volts divided by Ohms

Also: Watts (Power) = Volts x Amps
