## What happens when the current is doubled?

So the resistance will remain constant if current is doubled through doubling the voltage supply. Similarly resistance will have to be halved if voltage is to remain constant, & so on. The resistance of the circuit should be halved to double the current in the circuit.

**How would the current be affected in the circuit if the resistance is reduced by half?**

But current is also inversely proportional to the resistance; a halving of the resistance will double the current.

### What happens when the current is too high in a circuit?

If the current is too large, the heat loss can damage the circuit, burn the resistors, or even burn the surrounding objects. Even with circuits designed to prevent such situations, accidents can happen, such as when wires touch each other unexpectedly.

**What would happen to the current if the voltage is doubled?**

We can solve for current and replace V with 2V to see the result. This is equivalent to I=2(VR) . Therefore, we can see that if the voltage doubles, the current also doubles for the same resistance.

## What is the effect on the current in a circuit if both the voltage and the resistance are doubled?

and if the voltage and the resistance both are doubled, the current will not change. and if the voltage and the resistance both are doubled, the current will not change.

**What happens to current in a circuit if its resistance is doubled?**

The current is directly proportional to the voltage and inversely proportional to the resistance. So doubling or tripling the resistance will cause the current to be one-half or one-third the original value.

### What happens to the current in a circuit if the resistance is increased quizlet?

How does resistance affect current? As resistance is increased, current is decreased. If current is increased, resistance is decreased. This means that current is inversely proportional to resistance.

**Which effect is caused by current flow in circuit?**

When current flows in a circuit it exhibits various effects. The main effects are heating, chemical and magnetic effects. When current flows in a circuit it exhibits various effects. The main effects are heating, chemical and magnetic effects.

## What causes high current in a circuit?

An overcurrent can be caused by overloading the circuit or by a short circuit, a ground fault, or an arc fault. Circuit breakers and fuses protect circuit wiring from damage caused by overcurrent.

**What is the effect on the current in a simple circuit when the voltage is doubled and the resistance is cut by half?**

The number one law in circuit analysis is Ohm’s law: V = IR. Under this relationship, if voltage doubles and resistance halves, you will get 4x the original current.

### What is the effect on the current in a simple circuit when both the voltage and the resistance is halved?

What is the effect on current if both the voltage and the resistance are doubled? If both are halved? Current remains the same in both cases.
