When attaching a resistor to my power supply (which is a Extech 80W 3-in-1 Switching DC Power Supply, capable of 36V 5A) and the amps are set to let’s say 5A at 16V the voltage stays the same but the amps will shoot down to something like .11A, not even close to half an amp. I know this is because of Ohm's law but how can I exceed and force the resistor to take in what the power supply wants to put out? Of course it's the same situation on my weaker power supply as well. Do I have to toggle something on the PSU itself? I've seen at least 5 videos of others frying resistors, but they never show the readings on the PSU's display. I know it's possible with my own PSU, I'm just clueless as to how to configure it. I've tried it on a 4 band 120 ohm and a 5 band 1k resistor.
(I'm not a completely destructive mad man, I just have some useless components that no one wants. I want to stress test them out of curiosity instead of throwing them away.)
