Resistance of the resistor

The resistor terminals have a voltage of 20 V and a current of 5 mA is passed through. What is the resistance of the resistor?


R =  4000 Ω


U=20 V I=5/1000=1200=0.005 A R=U/I=20/0.005=4000=4000 ΩU=20 \ \text{V} \ \\ I=5 / 1000=\dfrac{ 1 }{ 200 }=0.005 \ \text{A} \ \\ R=U/I=20/0.005=4000=4000 \ Ω

Our examples were largely sent or created by pupils and students themselves. Therefore, we would be pleased if you could send us any errors you found, spelling mistakes, or rephasing the example. Thank you!
