Hello All, Need alittle help on this math problem,,, What would the resistance of a vdr be when the voltage is at 0.5 kilovolts and the current is at 100 microamperes?

50 million ohms.

I have this much money stashed under the matters.

I bet you would put up LOTS of resistance if we came to lift your matress!!!!

The answer is 5.0 million ohms.

For the solution the engineer's way of thinking, using scientific notation.

R = V/I

R = 0.5*10^3 / 100*10^-6

which is the same as,

R = 5*10^2 / 1*10^-4

which is the same as,

R = 5/1 times 10^2/10^-4

which is the same as,

R = 5 times 10^6

or 5 million ohms

See how easy it was using scientific notation!

I missed the 100 in the micro amp. I calculated the formula using 1 microamp. da!

Darn, that means there is only 5,000,000 stuffed under the mattress.

he need to find and use the equations.

Reference this, you should be able to figure anything out.
