A car has a 12 volt battery. The engine has a resistance of 0.22 ohms. How many amps will be drawn from the battery when the key is turned?

  • Physics -

    V=IR
    V= 12v
    R= 0.22 ohms
    I = V/R
    = 12/0.22
    =54.5 amps

  • math -

    E= I x R is the formula
    the answer is .5454
    I=amperes
    R=ohms
    E=volts
    12volts/22

    actually David is right. I forgot the decimal place from the 22 so it is 54.5 amps
