There would be

in current.no changeThe easiest way for me to demonstrate it is like this:

Ohm’s law: I = V / ROriginalcurrent =(original voltage) / (original resistance)Newcurrent = (0.5 x original voltage) / (0.5 x original resistance)Cancel 0.5 out of numerator and denominator:

Newcurrent =(original voltage) / (original resistance)So

New current = Original current
