I thought volts were the power and amperage was the push? That's what I was taught anyways. The ohms are still ohms. So I take a funnel, plug the end with my finger and fill with oil. The oil is the power, gravity would be the volts and the small end of the funnel would be the ohms. Right?
Well technically power is the current multiplied by the voltage. The oil is actually the electrons, and the rate of it's flow would be the current. Yes, gravity would be the force behind it, or voltage, and yes the size of the opening would be the resistance.
Voltage pushes current which seeks to get burned by the load.
That and astronomy:
Resistor band colors and the spectral classification of stars.
Voltage is the equivalent of water pressure, Ohms is a restriction and current is flow rate. Voltage is potential energy and current is expressed as "rate of electron charge through a medium", usually some kind of conductor, like wire or plasma. The Ampere is defined as the charge flowing through some surface at a rate of 1 Coulomb per second, with the number of electrons per Coulomb being 6.24150965(16)×1018
