Answer: Ohm's law is the most basic and most useful electrical equation. It explains the relationship between voltage (E) measured in volts, current (I) measured in amps, and resistance (R) measured in ohms. Without going into too much detail, Ohm's law plays a key PC role in Parallel versus Series Wiring. Parallel wiring is connecting components to a source so that they share the same voltage while Series wiring is connecting components to a source so that they share the same current.
