dear sir,
              consider a circuit consisting of a resistor of 5 ohms connected 
in series with a voltage source of 10v. we tell that the current through the 
entire circuit is 2A.thus a current of 2A enters the resistor and the same 
current leaves the resistor.then what do the resistor actualy do.does it resist 
the current as per the definition of it.
