## anonymous one year ago Ohm's Law help?? Anyone?

1. anonymous

@ganeshie8 @Compassionate Can either of you help?

2. hwyl

post the question

Use Ohm’s Law (V = IR) and the current and voltage for the battery to determine the total resistance in the circuit. Voltage:-9.99 Current:0.67

@hwyl

5. hwyl

what is current

6. anonymous

Amps

7. hwyl

what is it?

8. anonymous

The only information I have is voltage and current(amps)

9. hwyl

you need to know what current is

10. anonymous

What do you mean? Current is 0.67 amperes

11. hwyl

okay so I take it you don not know the definition of current here's what you have: $$I = VR$$ you need R, so how would you transform the formula so that you are solving for R?

12. hwyl

$$\huge \frac{I}{V} = \frac{VR}{V}$$

I honestly have no clue. I'll just be honest and say that this doesn't interest me, so I won't remember it. I'm just trying to graduate.

14. hwyl

that is an interesting philosophy to live by it is a simple algebra taught early as 5th grade if not 6th grade

Sorry, but it's the truth. If I have no interest in it, I can't remember it. I'll just figure it out.
