V=IR, help find potential difference

If the current is 5 amps, the resistance = 10 ohms, then what is the potential difference between 2 points in el.circuit in volts?

You already have the formula to solve the question.

V = IR, where Potential Difference(V) = Current (I) * Resistance(R)

your current (I) =   5 amps

Resisrance(R) = 10 ohms, so

V= I*R= 5 amps*10 ohms=50 volts.
