What will happen to the current in a circuit if the resistance is halved or doubled?

If R is halved, Current will be Doubled

If R is doubled, current will be halved

All this b coz, V=IR

The current in a circuit is inversely proportional to the resistance. If the voltage stays the same and the resistance is changed, then the current is the voltage divided by the resistance. In this case the resistance is doubled so the current is halved, and if the resistance is halved the current will get doubled

If resistance is halved then current is doubled

and if resistance is doubled then current is halved

because V=IR,

I=V/R

If the current in the circuit has half the resistance then the cicuit can be broken.If the current in the circuit has doubled the resistance the the chances of the circuit being broken is quite slim.

by ohms law v=ir

if v is constant then i 1/r , this means if we double r then i will be half

& if we half r then i will be double

if resistance is halved then current is doubled because -

V=IR THUS I IS INVERSELY PROPOTIONAL TO R when resistance is doubled current is halved .......................

I 1/R

So if resistance is halved, current is doubled and if resistance is doubled, current is halved..................

If the resistance is halved, then:

V=I*R

V/R=I

V/1/2R=I

V*2/1R=I

2(V/R)=I,

therefore the current gets doubled.

If the resistance is doubled, then:

V=I*R

V/R=I

V/2R=I

1/2(V/R)=I,

therefore the current gets halved.

If the resistance is halved the current flow increases & if the resistance is doubled intensity of the current decreases. Because intensity of current & resistance are inversely propotional.

let the resistance of the circuit be R,I and V denote current and potential difference respectively.

Then, V=IR

if resistence is halfed,

V=I*R/2 but the potential difference remains the same,

therefore I gets doubled

similarly if the resistance in the circuit is doubled then the current in the circuit gets halfed.

If **resistance** would be **half** than **current** will be **double**

BUT if **resistence** is **double** than **current** is **halved**

as V=IR

If R is halved, Current will be Doubled

If R is doubled, current will be halved

All this b coz, V=IR

The current in a circuit is inversely proportional to the resistance. If the voltage stays the same and the resistance is changed, then the current is the voltage divided by the resistance.

All this b coz, V=IR

If the resistance is halved, then:

V=I*R

V/R=I

V/1/2R=I

V*2/1R=I

2(V/R)=I,

If the resistance is doubled, then:

V=I*R

V/R=I

V/2R=I

1/2(V/R)=I,

therefore the current gets halved.

as current is inversly proportional to resistance so if resistance is halved current will increase and if it is doubled current will become 1/4
