Answer:

Multiply the resistance of the component by the current thru it.

Explanation:

To calculate voltage drop, E, across a component, you need to know the resistance of the component and the current thru it.

Ohm's Law is #E = I*R#, which tells us to then multiply #I" by "R#. E is the voltage across the component also known as voltage drop.
