Hi,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I had a query regarding the resistance from and I vs. V graph. Am i correct in thinking that the resistance is the recipricol of the GRADIENT at any given point? Or is the resistance simply the voltage through it at that point divided by the current? The two are obviously the same for a linear graph, but what about for non-linear graphs?

Thanks
