The Equations that are used for Electricity.

Click on an equation below for more information.

The two most important equations in electricity are given below.

P = V x I     power = voltage x current.

V = I x R    voltage = current x resistance.

Other equations that you should know include

P = E ÷ t     power = energy ÷ time.

Q = I x t    charge = current x time.

E = V x I x t    energy = voltage x current x time.

E = V x Q     energy = voltage x charge.

W = V x Q     work = voltage x charge.

The equations work whether the electricity is
direct current or alternating current. See calculations.
