    I =( V1-V2) / 50.

    V1`=12

    V2=12

    V1-V2=0

    V1-V2 / 50 = 0/50= 0A

    Zero,since applied voltage is zero !!!!

    0 current. for current to flow, both terminals are necessary.

    Zero if both terminals are connected to the positive terminal.

    A 50ohm resistor has both terminals connected to a positive terminal of a 12v battery ---> the current is 0

    Since both ends are at the same voltage there is no difference to make a current flow. Its like putting balls on a flat plank of wood and setting both ends at 12 meters, nothing will move unless there is a difference between the ends.

    ZERO Current Flow. You can not connect both ends to the Positive terminal.

    If they are both connected to the positive terminal, there is ZERO potential difference!

    Therefore ZERO current. trick question

    zero if both terminals are connected to the same post lol ..

      haha thats what i was thinking but i wasnt too sure.. i just never seen where the resistance exceeded the voltage.

  • V = I * R

    12 = I * 50

    12/50 = I

    24/100 = I

    0.24 = I

    0.24 amps or 240 milliamps
