Power supplied to a resistor:
From Ohm's law, the current through a resistor is:
The power supplied to a resistor is expressed as:
P = Vi
In this problem you will derive two different formulas for the power delivered to a resistor.
What is the power P supplied to a resistor whose resistance is R when it is known that it has a voltage ?V across it?
