Unit – 1 kWh = 3.6 × 106 J 1 W = 1V × 1A Definitions Potential difference: The potential difference between two separate points is defined as the work done to move a unit positive charge from one point to another.

Resistivity: Resistivity of a substance is equal to the resistance of a unit square of that substance. Law Ohm’ law: Under constant physical conditions (i.e., constant temperature, pressure etc.), the current flowing through a conductor is directly proportional to the potential difference across the conductor.
