Correct me if I'm wrong yet I think that's what happens but I don't recognize why it works prefer that.

You are watching: If the voltage is increased what will happen to the resistance?

The V = IR regulation we learned in school has actually a most analogies to various other physical phenomena, like liquid flowing v a pipe.

Voltage is choose pressure

Resistance is choose the width of the tube

Current is like...well...the current, the speed of the fluid

If you imagine, raising the resistance by to decrease the width of the tube makes the fluid passing with the tube have actually a greater pressure (considering fluid circulation stays the same).

If fluid flow can vary, or if liquid pressure is invariable (like liquid, one incompressible fluid), climate an raised resistance will cause increased existing instead (like squeezing a water hose to do the water spray out faster).

Thanks the goes in to an ext detail. I understand it now. Many thanks again

I think you median decreased current in your last paragraph. If voltage is invariable, increased resistance leader to lessened current.

Let me suggest out something the is implied in the other answers yet not stated explicitly: The voltage applied to a circuit the some addressed resistance determines exactly how much current flows in the circuit.

That's what Ohm's law describes. Ohm's regulation is often written as V=IR, however it is probably more intuitively understandable if you create it V/R = I. Voltage and also Resistance room the elevation variables, the present is the dependent variable.

If you increase the voltage, the current increases proportionally. If you host the voltage constant but increase the resistance, the present decreases proportionally.
