current flows as a result of potential difference i.e. in a circuit if there is no voltage difference between two points, no current can flow between those two points. So voltage has to be produced first.

What do you call the voltage and current produced at the secondary winding of the transformer?

Usable working voltage, because a transformer was used and sized to get a voltage and at a current that you need.Another Answer'Secondary voltage' and 'secondary current'!

Is the current produced by voltage or is it viceversa?

Voltage is responsible for the production of current. voltage is the unit of electromotive force which gives the electrons a motion in a definite direction which we call current. voltage can exist without current(i.e. in open ckt.) but current can not without voltage.

What will increase if the voltage in a circuit is increased?

Heat produced by the circuit, current

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.

What is alternating current normally produced by?

Alternating current is normally produced by rotating the magnet in the coil of an induced alternating voltage. When connected to a circuit, an alternating current will flow.

How resistance is produced when current passes through a conductor?

A: Resistance is not produced as a function of both voltage and current. It is a constant produced by electrons in orbit counts in an element. See periodic table

How is electrical current produced?

Current is produced in any circuit when an ElectroMotive Force (EMF, or potential difference, or voltage, all terms for EMF) is connected to a closed circuit.

What current is produced when a voltage of 60 volts is applied to a resistance of 15 ohms?

By Ohm's Law, current is voltage divided by resistance, so a voltage of 60 volts across a resistance of 15 ohms would yield a current of 4 amperes.

When the voltage of the electric current produced by a generating plant is lower than the voltage of the current carried by transmission lines?

The transmission line will try to drive the generators of the plant as motors.

How much current does a flashlight use is it's batteries supply 4.5 volts and it's bulb has a resistance of 9 ohms?

Ohm's Law: Voltage = current x resistance; solving for voltage, current = voltage / resistance.Ohm's Law: Voltage = current x resistance; solving for voltage, current = voltage / resistance.Ohm's Law: Voltage = current x resistance; solving for voltage, current = voltage / resistance.Ohm's Law: Voltage = current x resistance; solving for voltage, current = voltage / resistance.

What is the formula for current to voltage to power?

Power = (current) times (voltage)Current = (Power) divided by (voltage)Voltage = (Power) divided by (current)

What is the relationship among voltage current and resistance in a circuit?

Voltage = (current) x (resistance) Current = (voltage)/(resistance) Resistance = (voltage)/(current)
