During a short circuit, why does the voltage go down?

I know that the resistance is almost zero...but what's the relation between resistance and voltage?

    plz ignore the 1st part

    just plz help with this:
    what's the relation between resistance and voltage?

    Voltage drop across a resistor is current*resistance. A short circuit has zero resistance at the load, so the voltage across the load is zero.
