V/R=I
SO IF R REMAINS CONST,
AND V INCREASED 5 TIMES
I WILL ALSO INCREASED BY A FACTOR OF FIVE

When are Increses current becomes small. Then how it is possible?

Vijaya said: (Mar 2, 2012)  
When the voltage will be high in a resistor? If the current through the resistor high. So voltage through the resistor is 5 times higher means the current through the resistor is also 5 times higher.

V=IR.

I=V/R.

The current and the resistor ore inversely proportional. If current increases the resistor value decreases (or) the current decreases the resistor value increases.

Ohm's law states that.

"The current through a conductor between two points is directly proportional to the potential difference across the two points".

So voltage increases 5 time will current also increases 5 time.

Voltage is directly proportional to the current so voltage increases current also increases.

Kalai said: (Jun 29, 2013)  
@Kalai is correct if voltage increases current also increases states by ohm's law.

V=IR.

Current is constant then what may be changes in the voltage proportionality change in the current.

Revathi said: (Jul 19, 2013)  
Resistance was increased mean current also increase by a factor of five.

Resistance was increased mean current also increase by a factor of five.

V=IR,

Here resister is const. Therefore voltage is directly proportional to current. & if the voltage is increased the current also increased.

What is the relation between flux and current?

Helpful discussion. Thank you all.

Susheel said: (Jan 29, 2017)  
Thanks for explaining it.

According to ohm law, voltage and current have a direct relationship. This means that when the voltage increases the current also increases. So if the voltage double five times the current will double five times because of their relationship.

Thanks all for this clear explanation.

No change in resistor because it is fixed.
