How u can explain Ohm's law to a layman who is not knowing any thing about voltage, current or resistance?

Consider a tank which is filled with water and placed at some heights. This tank has a pipe connection that is going downwards to another tank in the ground level. The height difference between the 2 tanks can be considered as the potential difference (which measures in "voltage" ) and the flow of water from the tank 1 to tank 2 can be considered as the "current" . And the funny part is one day a stone got stucked in halfway of pipe and the water flow reduced, which can be considered as the term "resistance"😀

Another way is to Consider you are working in an office(circuit) and getting a salary( voltage) and your expenditure (current) for a fixed month(resistance). Now if your salary more, i.e. voltage is more then your expenditure is also more, i.e. is current is also more. It means your expenditures is directly proportional to the salary for a fixed month. And GS Ohm's law says that current is directly proportional to the voltage at fixed resistance.🙏

Suppose there are some students at point A and some distance B they show a 10 rs note. Would be their responsibility very less of them interested and move very slowly toward it. But what if they find 2000rs note at point B they will move very fast toward it. The same thing is happening when you apply a high potential difference between two points a large no. of electrons start to move from higher to lower potential. Since the current is generated due to cause of electron movement if 1 electron is generating x amount of current, then 5 electron will generate 5times than the initial value. So with increasing the potential, we can increase the current. So if 'V' is potential and 'I' is current, then 'I' is directly proportional to voltage difference.
