### Discussion :: Ohm's Law - General Questions (Q.No.4)

4.

If the resistance in a circuit with constant voltage increases, the current will

 [A]. increase [B]. decrease [C]. stay the same [D]. Not enough information

Answer: Option B

Explanation:

No answer description available for this question.

 Anoop Yadav said: (Dec 7, 2010) Because, I = V/R. Here I is inversely proportional to R. Therefore, if R increases (while V is constant) I decreases.

 Anil said: (Apr 23, 2012) The above explanation is accepted if and only if in the date it is mentioned that external conditions like temperature, strain, etc remains constant.

 Venkatesh said: (Mar 3, 2014) Given that 'V' is constant, V = IR. I = V/R. Here I is inversely proportional to R So, if R increases I decreases.

 Subrat said: (Jul 26, 2014) Due to const volt it cause heating effect collision takes place hence resistance decreases and I decreases.

 Nagendra Bc said: (Sep 23, 2014) Ohms law state that current is directly proportional to the voltage and inversely proportional to the resistance at constant temperature. I=V/R.

 Khadeer said: (Sep 2, 2015) But here constant voltage, then whats up.

 Hari said: (Mar 20, 2018) R=V/I.
