I don't feel like searching the web for a tutorial.
As you are educated you might know how to search?

But mostly U = R x I will do the job.
And sometimes a little P = U x I

If you hang around here long enough
you will soon be "in it" all.
----------------------

Some real ADVANCED PERSONS, (not Nelson Pass - amazingly! - he is probably to clever for that)
have reach so far that they are totally lost
in formulas that noone else understands
and that no longer relate to REAL WORLD AUDIO.

Try to avoid to go there - it is a serious illness!
You yourself are totally unaware - while others just smile at you.

-----------------------

Stay with the basic.
Whatever formulas you like to associate with
Current just keeps on creating Voltages over Resistances
whether it is Alternating Current, AC, or Direct Current, DC.
-----------------------

And things will stay that way a long time from now.

You need to refine your way to ask.

- Preferable one specific question at the time. (Or two)
- Give as much facts as possible
- You will get more interested, if you post a diagram or picture
to illustrate the subject.

The more specific you are in your question
the better answer you get.
