### Who is Ohm and what did he discover?

Georg Simon Ohm was a German schoolmaster who discovered that for certain conductors, the ratio of voltage to current was constant for variations in voltage. He thought that this applied to all conductors, but this is not the case. In fact, Ohm's Law applies to very few conductors and, then, only under very specific conditions.

### What is the voltage of a battery if it is connected across an 8 ohm resistor and 0.75 amps of current flows through the resistor?

The battery has 6 volts across its terminals. The way to discover it is to apply Ohm's law. It (Ohm's law) comes in 3 "flavors" that look a bit different but all say exactly the same thing. Here they are: E = I x R [Voltage equals current times resistance.] I = E/R [Current equals voltage divided by resistance.] R = E/I [Resistance equals voltage divided by current.] In these equations, voltage is E, current… Read More

### What is knee voltage and breakdown voltage?

Knee voltage (cut in voltage) :- The forward voltage at which the current through the P-N Junction starts increasing rapidly is called as Cut in voltage or knee voltage Breakdown voltage :- It is the minimum reverse voltage at which the P-N Junction can conduct without damage to the current

### Definition of ac and DC voltage?

AC voltage means Alternate Current Voltage DC voltage means Direct Current Voltage

### Is voltage drop means lost of voltage?

Voltage drop means reduction of voltage. Additional Answer According to Kirchhoff's Voltage Law, the sum of the voltage drops around any closed loop within a circuit must equal the value of the supply voltage. So, no, a voltage drop is not a 'lost' voltage, as the circuit's supply voltage is accounted for when you add up all the voltage drops (including any internal voltage drop within the source itself).

### What is meant by cut in voltage in diode?

Cut in voltage (Knee voltage): The forward voltage at which the current through the P-N Junction starts increasing rapidly is called as Cut in voltage or knee voltage.

### What is the conversion from RMS voltage to peak voltage?
