Solution:

4 M Ω X 4 mA = 4 X 106 Ω X 4 X 10-3 A = 16 X 103 V = 16 kV

Study the problem below, then continue.

38 K Ω = _______ M Ω

Solution:

Substitute 103 for k and 108 for M. You will then see that 103 to 106 is a

POSITIVE 3 change in exponent. So the decimal point in 38 moves 3 places to

the LEFT.

NOTE:

Remember, when converting a metric prefix to a larger metric prefix, move the

decimal point to the LEFT.

Thus:

38 kilohms becomes 38 X 103 ohms when substituting 103 for kilo and .038 X 108

ohms substituting 106 for mega. Your answer then becomes 38 kilohms = .038

megohms.
