So I know that voltage is a sort of pressure due to an imbalance of charges. And current is the resulting flow of charges. So when it comes to a resistor, does the resistance draw a current from the curcuit as well as a voltage? And what is meant by "voltage drop" across a resistor/element. Please use analogies in your answers please and thanks.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
