# What is the electric current produced when a voltage of 24 V is applied to a circuit with a resistance of 6 Omega?

May 24, 2018

The current is $= 4 A$

#### Explanation:

Apply Ohm's Law

$\text{voltage (V) "= "Current (A)" xx "Resiatance } \left(\Omega\right)$

$U = R I$

The voltage is $U = 24 V$

The resistance is $R = 6 \Omega$

The current is

$I = \frac{U}{R} = \frac{24}{6} = 4 A$

$4$ amperes

#### Explanation:

We use Ohm's law, which states that,

$V = I R$

where:

• $V$ is the voltage in volts

• $I$ is the current in amperes

• $R$ is the resistance in ohms

So, we get:

$I = \frac{V}{R}$

$= \frac{24 \setminus \text{V}}{6 \setminus \Omega}$

$= 4 \setminus \text{A}$
