# A circuit with a resistance of 8 Omega has a fuse with a capacity of 5 A. Can a voltage of 32 V be applied to the circuit without blowing the fuse?

The fuse should hold.

#### Explanation:

$R = 8 \Omega$

$I = \text{5 A}$

$V = \text{32 V}$

OHM'S LAW:

I =V/R = ("32 V")/(8Omega) = "4 A"

Since the current in the circuit is below the $\text{5 A}$ threshold, the fuse should hold.
