Very basic question here.
I have been learning a ton about Ohm's law, and I don’t seem to ever be able to completely understand it.
One of which I am getting particularly confused about is voltage drop and Ohm's law.
According to what I know about Ohm's law, if you increase the resistance, the current decreases, but the voltage stays the same. See below figures:
Here is a graph of the voltages of my 5V battery with resistors in the circuit:
The questions I have are:
- What are the physics behind this?
- Is there another law that covers this?
- Why does this contradict Ohm's law, or is there something that makes this inline with Ohm's law?
