Abstract

We have discussed resistance quite a bit in this book. Resistance is specifically about the ability of a component to be a good conductor of electricity. When a circuit encounters resistance, power is lost through the resistor.

1
RMS stands for “root mean square.” It is obtained by (a) squaring every data point, (b) averaging the squares, and then (c) taking the square root of the average. This is why it will be positive—it deals in squares.
