Say you have a power generator that can supply 1W at 100V DC.
If you connect a 10k Ohm resistor, exactly 0.01 A is going to flow across the resistor.
If you connect a 1 Ohm resistor, 100 A should flow across it, however the generator is limited to supply 1W, making it impossible. In this case, how much current is going to flow through the resistor? And what voltage will be applied?
My hypothesis is that, since power (energy) is conserved:
R * I^2 = 1 W
therefore I = 1 A. This implies a voltage of 1 V which means that the voltage applied has dropped from 100V to 1V. By the way, how quick is this drop?
Is this reasoning (and is result) correct?
