## What happens to resistance when current is tripled?

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.

### Is the resistance of a circuit were tripled then the current through the circuit would be?

Current is inversely proportional to the resistance. A threefold increase in the resistance would cause a threefold decrease in the current. 5.

**What happens to the current in the series if the resistance is doubled?**

if resistance is doubled then the current would be halved as resistance is inversely proportional to the current flowing in a circuit. that is if the resistance is doubled the current would be halved.

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

The current is directly proportional to the voltage and inversely proportional to the resistance. This means that increasing the voltage will cause the current to increase, while increasing the resistance will cause the current to decrease.

## What happens to the current in a circuit if the resistance triples if the voltage triples?

What is the resistance triples? The current is reduced to one-half; the current is reduce to one-third. What happens to the current in a circuit if the voltage doubles or triples? The current is doubled; the current is tripled.

### What happens to the total resistance?

In a series circuit, the total resistance across all of the components (the ‘net resistance’) increases as more components are added. The two resistors have the same current through them. The potential difference across them will be different if they have different resistances. The total resistance (

**What happens to the current if the resistance is halved?**

If the resistance is halved the current gets doubled. Electrical resistance is the obstruction in the flow of current.

**How will the power in a circuit be affected if the current in the circuit is doubled?**

If current is I and voltage is V , then resistance R=VI and power is given by P=V⋅I . As such when both the current and voltage in a circuit are doubled, resistance becomes R=2V2I=VI and hence remains same. However, power becomes P=2V⋅2! −4V⋅I i.e. power becomes four times.

It means that in an electric circuit, if voltage is kept constant the current increases if resistance decreases and vice versa.
