## Voltage drop in conductor

## Voltage drop in conductor

(OP)

I'm a plastics guy looking for some basic info on electricity. This is probably a very simple question:

In a DC circuit (such as in a car), how is voltage drop calculated in a specific conductor? Must the current drawn thru this specific conductor be known to calculate the voltage drop? I know the conductor dimensions and can get the resistance values for the conductor from a table.

Would appreciate any responses.
