But watts is *not* volts times amps, in an AC circuit. There is a power
factor in there to worry about. In the capacitor example, watts dissipated is
zero (or close to it) but VA might be rather high.
Correct. Ohms Law.

That is *not* Ohm's Law. Where do you get that? Sheesh--you're trying to
lecture *me* on this stuff???

E=IR, certainly *IS* Ohm's law. I and E are proportional. You can't increase
I without increasing E. Get it? I suppose not.

Wrong. You CAN increase I without increasing E. You have 3 variables in that
formula, not just 2.

Dumbass, it's a fixed circuit.
You've only proved that you're just as stupid as David.
