Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1resistance. Power comes later.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[V=IR=>I=\frac{V}{R}\]Looking at those equations (as @Shadowys said) you should see that current is inversely related to resistance. Power should be considered more of a result of the current and voltage: \[P=IV\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The power rating is how much heat the resistor can dissipate without melting, burning or otherwise wrecking itself.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0That's true also but I don't think that's what the question is asking
