resistance drop

resistance drop

[ri′zis·təns ‚dräp]
(electricity)
The voltage drop occurring between two points on a conductor due to the flow of current through the resistance of the conductor; multiplying the resistance in ohms by the current in amperes gives the voltage drop in volts. Also known as IR drop.
