# What is the electric current produced when a voltage of 8 V is applied to a circuit with a resistance of 36 Omega?

Mar 14, 2018

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

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

$I = \frac{8 \text{ V}}{36 \Omega}$

$I = 0.222 \ldots \text{ A}$

The current is $= 0.22 A$

#### Explanation:

Apply Ohm's Law

$\text{Voltage (V)"="Current (A)"xx "Resistance (Omega)}$

$U = R I$

The voltage is $U = 8 V$

The resistance is $R = 36 \Omega$

The current is

$I = \frac{U}{R} = \frac{8}{36} = 0.22 A$
