A resistor is one of the most widely used and most basic[ electronic components]. It a is cassified as a passive device that creates a resistance to the flow of [electrons]. ohm's law states that the current through a conductor between two points is directly proportional to the potential difference across the two points. Introducing the constant of proportionality, the resistance, one arrives at the usual mathematical equation that describes this relationship:
