Resistance is the property of a material to oppose the flow of electrons through it (current). When electrons flow through a material, they collide with the other atoms in the material and lose its energy. The loss of energy results in the drop of potential energy across the material. R = (V/I)
V = potential difference across the material.
I = current flowing through the materialThe units (measurement) of resistance are referred to as ohms.
