# Keeping the Potential Difference Constant, The Resistance of a Circuit is Doubled. by How Much Does the Current Change? - CBSE Class 10 - Science

ConceptElectric Potential Difference

#### Question

Keeping the potential difference constant, the  resistance of a circuit is doubled. By how much does the current change?

#### Solution

We know that V = IR

If V is constant, resistance is doubled  R' = 2R.

Then V' = I'R'

V' = V since is constant

V=Txx2xxR

T=(v)/(2R)=I/2`

Thus, the current will get reduced to half.

Is there an error in this question or solution?
