  1. Feb 26, 2009 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    If a device uses 3 ampere and a 120 Volt, what is the resistance of the material?

    2. Relevant equations
    I think it's R=120/3

    3. The attempt at a solution My answer is 40 but I don't know 40 what? I don't know if the answer is right.
