Current flow in a generator??

In an AC generator what are 2 things that are going to determine the current flow (or the direction of I)???

I'll give you a hint. Look at the variables in ohm's law, which is

I = V/R

I is the current
V is something
R is something

V and R are the two other things you're looking for. I'm sure you won't have a problem finding what they are after searching "ohm's law" on google or somewhere. In fact, if we didn't have whatever corresponds to V, electricity couldn't even flow. The other hint i'll drop that an electrical toaster has a very high R.

If you know the working of an AC Generator , it will help. AC generator works on the principle of induced emf due to changing flux throught he coil.Read the theory and try to answer the question yourself.
