# a 50ohm resistor has both terminals connected to a positive terminal of a 12v battery what is the current in the resistor?

Relevance
• I =( V1-V2) / 50.

V1`=12

V2=12

V1-V2=0

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

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

• Zero if both terminals are connected to the positive terminal.

• 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
