### Discussion :: Voltage and Current - General Questions (Q.No.42)

42.

A short circuit will have:

 [A]. a small current flow [B]. a large current flow [C]. no current flow [D]. some current flow

Explanation:

No answer description available for this question.

 Bikash said: (Jan 4, 2011) As the resistance zero in short circuit.SO, the current flow is maximum.

 Sri said: (Apr 19, 2011) hey in short circuits voltage is zero...according to ohms law v=IR, I will be zero..but it is max. how it is?

 Nidhya said: (Jun 27, 2011) I dunno to tell with respect to ohm's law. The thing is lik this. When it is short circuited, (it means the ends are connected by a conductor) there is no resistance(ideally infinite) available to stop the flow of electrons. it means current flow is very high(ideal case- infinity).since the charges are moving faster there is no potential difference that exists across the points, hence voltage(ie potential difference) is 0

 Nidhya said: (Jun 27, 2011) Or with ohm's law itself we an say like: V=IR Here I=infinite; R=0 So, V=0.

 Jayanth said: (Jul 1, 2011) Thank you Nidhya.

 Kiranmai said: (Apr 4, 2012) With ohms law we is directly proportional to I irrespective of are then how would be v=0?

 Vaijinath.T.R. said: (May 4, 2012) According to ohm's law:- V=IR I=V/R Current is a inversely proportional to the resistance when resistance is 0(short circuit resistance is always 0) the current in a circuit is infinity.

 Amit said: (Jan 21, 2014) As per ohms law V = IR agreed, but here V you can say as source and v is voltage drop across R, so don't confuse between V and v, here V is source and R is resistance so if R = 0 ohms then v drop across R is o v but due to V source current flows maximum we can say as short circuit current.

 Satish Tripathi said: (Mar 7, 2015) Short circuit means r=0. So if r is 0 that means i-maxm, so B.

 Joseph Ramki said: (Jul 11, 2015) Yes, I can understand current flow is max according to ohms law.
