The question is incorrect.

Power equals current times voltage.

Since voltage is current times resistance, power is also equal to current squared times resistance.

No. Voltage divided by resistance is equal to current.


What does current divided by resistance equal?

Ohm's Law Voltage = Current x Resistance


What says that the resistance is equal to the voltage divided by the current?

The definition of the ohm, and not Ohm's Law, tells us that resistance is voltage divided by current.


In ohms law resistance is equal to voltage divided by what?

Resistance is a measure of how well current flows through the material. As such, voltage divided by current in amps results in resistance

What is the formula for electrical current?

Current in amps is equal to the voltage divided by the resistance in ohms.


The resistance of a circuit is equal to the current divided by the voltage?

No. Ohm's Law says R = V/I or Voltage/Current.


What does voltage divided by current equal?

Ohm so correctly said: Voltage divided by current equals resistance. Voltage divided by current will tell you the value of a circuit's resistance. But resistance is not affected by either voltage or current. It is determined by the length, cross-sectional area, and resistivity (type of conducting material) of the conductor. Resistivity is, in turn, affected by temperature. So voltage divided by current tells you what the resistance happens to be - changes in voltage or current do not affect resistance.


The statement that current is equal to the voltage difference divided bythe resistance in known as?

Ohm's Law V = I R Voltage = Current x Resistance


Is current the voltage multiplied by resistance?

No. V = Voltage, I = current, and R = resistance in the simple equation: V=I*R. As well, V/I=R, and V/R=I - says that Current is Equal to Voltage divided by Resistance.


When both voltage and resistance are doubled what happens to the current?

Since current is, by Ohm's Law, equal to voltage divided by resistance, then doubling both will result in no net effect to the current.


What is the statement current is equal to the the voltage difference divided by the resistance know as?

Ohm's law.


Who says that the resistance is equal to the voltage divided by the current?

German physict Georg Ohm


What voltage produces a current of 500 amps with a resistance of 50 ohms?

The voltage is gained by multiplying the current and resistance together, i.e.. 50 x 500 = 25000 Imagine the three as a triangle with the voltage at the top, and the current and resistance at the bottom- V . ---- . I x R The voltage divided by the current is the resistance and the voltage divided by the resistance is the current. Therefore the current times the resistance is equal to the voltage. Having any two of these figures allows you to find the third.


What happens to the current in a device if the resistance of the device increases and the voltage stays the same?

By Ohm's Law, current is equal to voltage divided by resistance, so if resistance increases, with voltage staying the same, current must therefore decrease.


The statement, current is equal to the voltage difference divided by the resistance, is known as?

Ohm's Law. It is usually written as V = I x R or in words Voltage is equal to Current times Resistance; or in your terms I = V / R.


Is current a measure of the flow electrons through a circuit?

I believe so. It is also equal to power divided by voltage, as well as voltage divided by resistance.


What is current is equal to the voltage difference by the resistance?

Ohm's Law: Current is voltage divided by resistance.Alternative AnswerIf, by 'statement', you are referring to a 'law', then there is no electrical law that states that 'current is voltage divided by resistance'.The relationship between voltage, current, and resistance is derived from the definition of the ohm, which is defined in terms of a volt per ampere, which can be manipulated to say that 'current is equal to voltage divided by resistance'.This is frequently, but incorrectly, described as being 'Ohm's Law', but Ohm's Law isn't universal and it only applies to a very limited range of linear (or 'ohmic') loads, whereas 'resistance is voltage divided by current' applies to allloads (linear or non-linear) at any given value of voltage.

How does voltage and resistance behave in a series and a parallel circuit?

The current through each resistor is equal to the voltage across it divided by its resistance for series and parallel circuits.


What happen to the current when the voltage is greater than or equal to 6 volts?

The current is greater than or equal to (6) divided by (the effective resistance of the circuit).


Is the resistance of a bulb equal to the current flow through it divided by by the voltage?

Resistance = Voltage / CurrentAnswerA tungsen lamp doesn't obey Ohm's Law , because the ratio of voltage to current varies as the applied voltage varies. However, the ratio of voltage to current will tell you what the resistance of the lamp happens to be for any particular voltage.


What is Current is equal to the voltage difference of a circuit divided by it's resistance?

Current is equal to the voltage difference of a circuit divided by it's resistance, because that is how resistance is defined. Current is coulombs per second. Voltage is joules per coulomb. Ohm's law says that resistances is voltage divided by current. Expand that and you get joule-seconds per coulomb squared. This combined unit was named ohms (Omega, Ω) after Georg Simon Ohm, who did most of the experimental and theoretical work on resistivity.


How do resistance behave in parallel circuit?

The current through each resistor is equal to the voltage across it divided by its resistance ... exactly the same as in a series circuit.


What does current times resistance equal?

Voltage or potential difference.
