    a short circuit mean that there is no resistance for current flowing in through the wire as there is no resistance , for current I , using Ohm's law Potential across the short circuit = I*R = I * 0 = 0 Potential across the short circuit is 0 V this value of potential is independent of amount of current flowing through the short circuit
