When does a larger voltage result in a greater current?

  1. Jun 19, 2016 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    I was looking at a question which asked when the induced current in a circuit was greatest, and this was when the rate of change of magnetic flux was greatest. However, this (seems to )contradicts V = IR. Can anyone explain?
    2. Relevant equations


    3. The attempt at a solution

    How?

    I thought that if we have constant resistance, an increase in voltage would lead to a decrease in current. At least that's how I interpret the equation.

    R=V/I. Increase in voltage increases the current such that V/I is constant. I is in direct proportion with V. That's pretty intuitive, isn't it?

    Yeah, it makes sense thinking about it like that. Thanks
