The 20 Ω resistor is a common component in **many electronic devices**, including transceivers and gaming consoles. They are typically located on the left side of the device, next to the power button.

Limited availability makes it a sought-after item in modern technology. While it may not **seem like much** at first glance, this little resistor can **hold large amounts** of power and can be used as a variable source for accuracy when building your projects.

This article will discuss what the magnitude and direction of the current in the 20 Ω resistor is. This information can also be useful when looking for sellers or when trying to determine if a 20 Ω resistor is appropriate for your project.

## Next, determine the direction of current flow

When the resistor is connected to a source of current, such as a wall socket, it creates a parallel connection. This means that both sides of the resistor are connected to the same source of current.

This is called a positive-negative (or positive-positive) configuration. When this happens, the direction of current flow is determined by which side of the resistor is connected to the current source.

The magnitude of the current depends on this magnitude and location. A small amount of current flowing will be large in magnitude and enter an electrical circuit faster than a larger amount of current flowing.

As mentioned earlier, 20 Ω resistors are ** 1 watt per kilogram**, so a 20 Ω resistor would produce about 1 watt per kilogram when an external load is placed on it.

## Last, determine the magnitude of current flow

When the current in the 20 Ω resistor is low, you can use a small amount of load to determine the magnitude of current flow.

If there is a **powerful appliance** in your home that uses a 20 Ω resistor, you can measure the amount of power it consumes using an amp meter. If this appliance consumes a large amount of power, then there is **likely current flowing** in the resistor.

## Use Ohm’s law to calculate current

Using the 20 Ω resistor as an example, let’s say we want to calculate the current that flows through it. We can do so using Ohm’s law.

Ohm’s law states that the charging current for a voltage source is equal to the current flowing through that source in an approximation. In this case, Ohm’s law states that current flows through the 16 Ω resistor in a manner of 0.063 A (pump handle) per 16 Ω (resistance).

This approximation is very true and general, even though it does not reflect actual reality very well. The truth is, real-life 16 Ω resistors vary in size and resistance, which produces a different approximation for how much current flows through them.

As an example, a 1-watt lightbulb might have a 16 Ω resistor in it, but it is not **exactly one inch square** and has some resistance to it. This makes a different amount of 0.063 A (pump handle) per 16 Ω (resistance).

## The direction of current flow is from positive to negative terminal

When the magnitude of current flowing into or out of a resistor is positive, it is in the magnitude direction. When it is negative, it is in the magnitude direction.

This means that when 20 Ω resistor is charged to 20 mA, the magnitude of current flowing into the resistor is 20 mA + 0.5 mA = 21 mA.

When this 21 mA flows through a 1 A power supply, it causes the 1 A to flow out at one end and 7.5 Ω at the other end. The 7.5 Ω remains constant while the 1 A changes from 0 to 21 muamps (21 muamps) in just seconds!

This phenomenon was discussed earlier when we spoke about how *extreme high currents* can go through transistors and such. This occurs because of their limited tolerance for *negatively charged particles* such as dust or water.

The second order system stability condition is the second derivative of the system’s output waveform with respect to time. This implies that the output must not vary too quickly with time.
