# How much power is produced if a voltage of 3 V is applied to a circuit with a resistance of 6 Omega?

$\frac{3}{2} \mathmr{and} 1.5$

#### Explanation:

The formula for calculating is:
$P = {V}^{2} / R$

where:

P = Power
V = Voltage $V$
R = Resistance $\Omega$

substituting:

$P = \frac{{3}^{2}}{6}$

$P = \frac{9}{6}$

$P = \frac{3}{2}$ or $1.5$
