Resistors and Ohm's Law Video Lessons

Concept

# Problem: During open-heart surgery, a defibrillator can be used to bring a patient out of cardiac arrest. The resistance of the path is 500 Ω and a 10.0-mA current is needed. What voltage should be applied?

###### FREE Expert Solution

From Ohm's law:

$\overline{){\mathbf{V}}{\mathbf{=}}{\mathbf{i}}{\mathbf{R}}}$, where i is the current, and R is the resistance.
