## Applied Voltage Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Applied Voltage.

Va = Ac * R

Variables:

- Where Va is the Applied Voltage (volts)
- Ac is the applied current (amps)
- R is the total resistance of the circuit (ohms)

To calculate the applied voltage, multiply the applied current by the total resistance.

## How to Calculate Applied Voltage?

The following two example problems outline how to calculate the Applied Voltage.

**Example Problem #1:**

- First, determine the applied current (amps). In this example, the applied current (amps) is measured to be 30.
- Next, determine the total resistance of the circuit (ohms). For this problem, the total resistance of the circuit (ohms) is calculated to be 20.
- Finally, calculate the Applied Voltage using the formula above:

Va = Ac * R

Inserting the values from above and solving the equation with the imputed values gives:

Va = 30* 20 = 600 (volts)

**Example Problem #2: **

Using the same process as example problem 1, we first define the variables outlined by the formula. In this case, the values are:

applied current (amps) = 10

total resistance of the circuit (ohms) = 5

Entering these values into the formula or calculator above gives us::

Va = 10 * 5 = 50 (volts)
