Application of Ohm's LawAuthor: E.E. Kimberly Ohm's Law states that the direct current in a circuit is equal to the impressed direct difference of potential divided by the circuit resistance. Thus, by equation (12),
Example 31.  In Fig. 31 let the 230volt directcurrent generator G be connected to the terminals of the resistor R whose resistance is 50 ohms. Find the current.
Solution.  The current is I = V/R = 230/50 = 4.6 amp.
