# What is the electric current produced when a voltage of 8 V is applied to a circuit with a resistance of 16 Omega?

Jan 12, 2016

$I = 0.5 A = 500 m A$

#### Explanation:

The Ohm's Rule is:

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

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

In this case:

$V = 8 V$
$R = 16 \Omega$

then

$I = {\cancel{8}}^{1} / {\cancel{16}}^{2} = \frac{1}{2} = 0.5 A$

With A= Ampere measurement unit of I

Sometimes, in Electronic, is usally expressed as $\left[m A\right]$

$1 m A = {10}^{-} 3 A$

$\therefore I = 0.5 A = 500 m A$
