# Ohm’s law Question: In any circuit current is inversely proportional to

Statement: In any circuit, current is inversely proportional to:

- Voltage
- Resistance
- Both of these
- None of these

Correct answer: Voltage

In any circuit, the current is inversely proportional to resistance and directly proportional to applied voltage. The statement about is based on the definition of **Ohm’s law**.

From mathematical formula V = IR:

Current = Voltage / Resistance

Let’s consider voltage is constant having value 20 V.

Now for the resistance of 10 ohms

Current = 20 V / 10 ohms = 2 A … (1)

Let’s now increase the resistance to 30 ohms

Current = 20 V / 30 ohms = 0.66 A … (2)

Comparing both equations we observe the higher value of resistance lowers the electric current through a circuit.
