How much power is produced if a voltage of 3 V is applied to a circuit with a resistance of 24 Omega?

$P = 0.375$ Watts
or
$P = 375 \cdot {10}^{-} 3$ Watts

Explanation:

We know:

$P = {\left(V\right)}^{2} / \left(R\right)$

Where $P$ is power, $V$ is Volt and $R$ is resistance.

$P = {3}^{2} / 24$

$P = \frac{9}{24}$

$P = \frac{3}{8}$

$P = 0.375$ Watts
or
$P = 375 \cdot {10}^{-} 3$ Watts
