(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Suppose a current of 1 A is flowing through a resistor. If this makes the resistor heat up, will the current through the resistor increase, decrease, or remain constant? Assume the voltage applied to the resistor is constant.

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

Please help me with this, i'm not sure, but I believe the current will decrease slightly because of the heat dissipated?
