# PSpice: How do I calculate the voltage drop across a resistor?

I'm searching for a tool that would display the voltage drop across a resistor in PSpice. Is there an element (like a voltmeter) that would help me able to do so?

• If you know the current, do the math. $I*R$ gives you the Vdrop. $I{2}R$ gives you the watts. – Sparky256 May 24 '18 at 4:00
• You probe voltage on both sides and use math to subtract. – mkeith May 24 '18 at 4:16
• If you using Cadence Design Systems' OrCAD or Allegro software and you are placing voltage markers (probes) via the schematic capture window, there is a "voltage differential marker" on the toolbar. (Hint: Perform an Internet search using "PSpice voltage differential marker".) There are also "voltage markers" that use the '0' (zero) ground potential as their reference potential. – Jim Fischer May 24 '18 at 6:21
