I'm curious the amount the voltage would drop across a resisitor.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

If you know the power going into the resistor and the maximum voltage allowed is say, 50V. How would that resistor effect the voltage? I understand the voltage would decrease, and when substituting and solving equations the new voltage would be sqrt(Power*Resistance). Is there anything else someone could add so I can better understand this? Thank you.
