# What is the electric current produced when a voltage of 8 V is applied to a circuit with a resistance of 2 Omega?

$4$ Amperes

#### Explanation:

Since $V = I R$

Where:
$V$ = Voltage
$I$ = Current
$R$ = Resistance $\Omega$

We can derive the formula for $I$ (Current) By simply dividing both sides of the equation by $R$, giving:

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

Plug the given to the equation:

$I = \frac{8}{2}$

hence, the answer is $I = 4$ Amperes
