the current is 0.17amps

Explanation:

This problem bothers power of an electrical circuit.

Electric power is defined as the electric heat transferred per second. This can be expressed as

P=IV

P= V²/R

P= I²R

Given data

Power p= 7.04w

Resistance R=236 ohms

Using the third equation and Substituting our data we have

7.04= I²* 236

I²= 7.04/236

I= √0.029

I= 0.17amps
