I am working on creating a game in which players build a circuit, but there is a gap in my understanding of all of the math. It is difficult to find this "formula" because there are so many measuring systems. Let's say the interaction is that the players of my game place the virtual batteries and use resistors in the circuit to dampen the current. For example, how do current and voltage both convert to watts? To illustrate, let's say I wanted to deliver 30 watts of elect.to light a lamp. Let's say the current coming from some batteries is shown to be 40 amps. Each resistor (say we use two) resists 5 volts. Is this correct?
