The power dissipated in a resistor is expressed as:

$\overline{){\mathbf{P}}{\mathbf{=}}\frac{{\mathbf{(}\mathbf{\u2206}\mathbf{V}}^{}}{}}$_{R}

P = (ΔV_{R})^{2}/R

From Ohm's law:

R = ΔV_{R}/I

The power dissipated in a resistor can be written as _____.

A. (ΔV_{R})^{2}/R

B. IΔV_{R}

C. I^{2}R

D. All of the listed answers are correct.

E. None of the listed answers are correct.
