These Ohm's Law word problems will show you how to use the Ohm's Law to solve some basic and simple word problems.
We will use the formula to show how to do the followings:
Problem #1:
A frying pan is connected to a 110-volt circuit. If the resistance of the frying pan is 10 ohms, how many amperes does the frying pan draw?
Solution
The voltage and the resistance are given, so we can just use the formula to find the current.
Problem #2:
When a current of 3 amperes is run through the coiled heating element of a stove, the resistance of the element is 80 ohms. What is the voltage of the stove?
Solution
The current and the resistance are given. We need to use the formula to solve for the voltage or v.
Problem #3:
A lightbulb carries 0.5 A when 4 volts is impressed across it. What is the resistance of the filament in the lightbulb?
Solution
The current and the voltage are given. We need to use the formula to solve for the resistance.
