Data:-
Voltage#=V=24V#
Resistance#=R=32 Ohm#
Current#=I=??#

Sol:-

We know that:
#V=IR#
#implies I=V/R=24/32=3/4#
#implies I=3/4Ampere#

Answer:

Use the VIR triangle to remember #I = V/R# hence #I = 3/4#A

Explanation:

Use the VIR triangle:

We are given #V = 24#V and #R = 32Omega#, so

#I = V/R = 24/32 = 3/4#A

The VIR triangle can be read as #V = IR#, #I = V/R# or #R = V/I#
