When an alternating voltage is applied to purely resistive circuit what happens?

When an alternating voltage is applied to a purely resistive circuit, the resulting current is in phase with the voltage.

How will a change in the applied voltage affect the current flow in a circuit?

A change in the applied voltage will result to a corresponding change in the current flow because from Ohms law current is directly proportional to the applied voltage.

What is disruptive voltage?

In the transmission lines, there is no apparent change in the condition of air(CORONA) surounding the wires if the applied voltage is low.However,when the applied voltage exceeds the certain value,called disruptive voltage !!!

Ac voltage applied across a load resistance produce alternating current?

The reason an AC voltage applied across a load resistance produces alternating current is because when you have AC voltage you have to have AC current. If DC voltage is applied, DC current is produced.

Why carbon is not considered as a semiconductor?

The resistance of a semiconductor depends on the amplitude and polarity of the applied voltage. The resistance of carbon doesn't depend on the amplitude or the polarity of the applied voltage.

Does ohm's law state that less current flows when a higher voltage is applied?

No. Current flow through a constant resistance varies proportionately to the voltage applied.
