# Calculate the Current in a Simple Circuit

## Anastasia's Simple Circuit Setup

Anastasia constructed a simple circuit with a battery and a light bulb. She knows that the resistance of the light bulb is **10Ω** and that the voltage given to the light bulb is **12 V**.

## Calculating Current

Ohm's Law states that **V = IR**, where V is voltage, I is current, and R is resistance. To find the current flowing through the light bulb, we can rearrange the formula to **I = V/R**.

Plugging in the values we have:

I = 12 V / 10Ω

I = 1.2 A

## Answer

**Answer:**

By calculating the current using Ohm's Law, the current flowing through the light bulb in Anastasia's circuit is **1.2 Amperes (A)**.

## Question:

How can we find the current in a simple circuit with known voltage and resistance?

## Answer:

Simple Single Loop Circuits. J. E σ. = ∆V = IR ... To find the current, use the total voltage and equivalent resistance: S. V ... A circuit contains a 48-V battery and two 240Ω light bulbs.
