    Memorize ohms law and all of the variations. If you are going into the electrical field it is the mother of all laws and applies to everything.

    I misread your original thread and thought you said transistor but my earlier statement is still true but a transformer is an inductor and then other considerations have to be taken into account and not the least of which is X sub L.

    Ohm's law applies to everything. In addition, other equations describe the inductive nature of transformers, and transformer action.
