# Worksheet: Ohm's Law

In this worksheet, we will practice defining voltage, current, and resistance and using Ohm's law to calculate these values in simple electrical circuits.

Q1:

• CThe energy dissipated per electron between two given points
• DThe number of electrons that pass a given point in one second
• EThe energy dissipated per coulomb of electrons between two given points
