## User Guide

Use this calculator to determine the resistance in ohm, kilohm or megohm units of a direct current (DC) electrical circuit with a specified voltage and power. Two conversion scales show how the resistance will vary when the voltage or power is changed independently, whilst the other remains fixed with the entered value.

### Formula

The formula used by this calculator to determine the DC electrical resistance from the voltage and power of the circuit is:

R = V² / P

#### Symbols

- R = Resistance (DC)
- V = Voltage (DC)
- P = Electrical power (DC)

### Voltage (V)

This is the DC voltage or electrical potential difference applied to or generated by the electrical circuit.

### Power (P)

This is the electrical power generated in a DC electrical circuit.

### Resistance (R)

This is the electrical resistance of the DC electrical circuit with the entered values for power and current.
