Value of the resistence

  1. Mar 2, 2004 #1
    At exactly 1:00 pm on a certain day a 10 v potential difference is suddenly applied across a 'real' resistence and generates a current of 0.2 amps in the resistence. The value of the resistence at this moment is about 50 ohms. Lets say the 10 v are held constant and current is allowed to travel through the resistence for 5 minutes. At the end of the 5 minutes, the current in the 'real' resistence is expected to be what? this is not a trick question, temp is not a factor.

    Is temp constant?

    What are you getting at? Is this a trick question or a genuine enquiry?
