### Example Question #11 : Electricity And Magnetism

A circuit has a current, , a voltage, , and a resistance, . If the voltage remains constant, but the current is doubled (), what must the new resistance be?

There is insufficient information to solve

Explanation:

To solve this problem, use Ohm's law:

Since we are doubling the current, but the voltage is remaining the same, we can set our old and new equations equal to each other.

We know that the second current is equal to twice the first current.

Use this equation to substitute current into the first equation.

The initial current now cancels out from both sides.

Divide both sides by two to isolate the final resistance variable.
