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

Given a circuit with one battery and a single resistor. The circuit has a battery voltage of V, a total current I and resistance R. To increase the current by a factor of 48.0 then by what factor will the voltage need to be increased?

A. 12.0

B. 90.0

C. 65.0

D. 2.00

E. 48.0

2. Relevant equations

Amps = Volts/Ohms

3. The attempt at a solution

I think it's 48.

Amps = Volts/Ohms

48* Amps = (Volts * x)/Ohms

48*Amps * Ohms = Volts * x

48 * Volts = Volts * x

x = 48

Does this look OK?

Thanks a lot,

Jason
