Homework Help: Will an increase of voltage also increase Amps?

  1. May 2, 2007 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Will an increase of voltage also increase Amps?

    3. The attempt at a solution

    I always hear this water analogy where voltage is equivalent to pressure. If I picture a pipe with some water coming out the end, increasing pressure will result in more water coming out the end per unit time, and so the answer to my question should be yes? Correct?

    If it is a simple Ohm's law system then yes, increasing voltage, increases current.
