Answer:

#0.22 \text(A)#

Explanation:

Ohm's Law: #V = I R#

#I = V/R = 12/55 = 0.22 \text(A)#

Answer:

The electric current produced is approximately #0.22# amperes.

Explanation:

We use Ohm's law here, which states that

#V=IR#

Since we need to solve for current, which is #I#, we rearrange the equation into:

#I=V/R#

Plugging in the given values, we get

#I=(12 \ "V")/(55 \ Omega)#

#~~0.22 \ "A"#
