The voltage across a resistor is determined by the current flowing through 
it.  For a given current the voltage is a given.  It is not possible to have 
a fixed voltage drop across a resistor and a varying current through the 

I am not sure I have answered the question you meant to ask.  Feel free to 
expand on your question.
