The value of current, I, flowing in a given resistor for the corresponding values of potential difference, V, across the resistor are given below :
{:(I("ampere"),0.5,1.0,2.0,3.0,4.0),(V("volt"),1.6,3.4,6.7,10.2,13.2):}
Polt a graph between V and I and calculate the resistance of the resistor.

The graph between V and I plotted by using the given data is shown below:

If we look at the above graph, we find that when potential difference V is 8.5 volts, then the corresponding current value is 2.5 amperes. Now,
Resistance, R = (V)/(I)
R =(8.5)/(2.5)
R =3.4 Omega
Thus, the resistance of the resistor is 3.4 ohms.
