# What is the electric current produced when a voltage of 24 V is applied to a circuit with a resistance of 40 Omega?

I got $0.6 A$

#### Explanation:

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

$V = R I$

so that:

$I = \frac{V}{R} = \frac{24}{40} = 0.6 A$

$0.6$ amperes

#### Explanation:

Using Ohm's Law,

$V = I R$

• $I$ is the current flowing in amperes

• $R$ is the resistance in ohms

And so, we can rearrange the equation into,

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

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

$I = \frac{24 \setminus \text{V}}{40 \setminus \Omega}$

$= 0.6 \setminus \text{A}$
