Hi,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

This may sound a little silly but I have a circuit with 1 resistor which is a 1k ohm resistor

and is connected to a 9 Volt battery.I found the amps using ohm's law I = E/R which equals 9 amps.I have also used a multi-meter to see the resistance and I'm a bit confused a resistor is supposed to resist so what is 1 resistor resisting?
