Let the resistance of an electrical component remain constant while the potential difference across the two ends of the component decreases to half of its former value. What change will occur in the current through it?

We know, From Ohm’s Law:

Since the resistance is constant and the potential difference is decreased to half of the former value. Thus, the current through the component will also decrease to half of its former value.
