The current, #I#, in terms of Voltage, #V#, and resistance, #R#, is:

#I = V/R#

#I = (8" V")/(36Omega)#

#I = 0.222..." A"#

Answer:

The current is #=0.22A#

Explanation:

Apply Ohm's Law

#"Voltage (V)"="Current (A)"xx "Resistance (Omega)"#

#U=RI#

The voltage is #U=8V#

The resistance is #R=36 Omega#

The current is

#I=U/R=8/36=0.22A#
