Answer:

I got #0.6A#

Explanation:

We can use Ohm's Law relating voltage #V#. Current #I# and Restance #R#:

#V=RI#

so that:

#I=V/R=24/40=0.6A#

Answer:

#0.6# amperes

Explanation:

Using Ohm's Law,

#V=IR#

  • #I# is the current flowing in amperes

  • #R# is the resistance in ohms

And so, we can rearrange the equation into,

#I=V/R#

Now, we can plug in the given values, and get,

#I=(24 \ "V")/(40 \ Omega)#

#=0.6 \ "A"#
