Hi all. I am newbie to electronics and this forum.

I am trying to get my head round ohm's law ( V = IR ).

I got 2V power supply with current set to 0.04 A. I connected both ends power supply to a resistor of 470 Ohms. Now when I connect multimeter (set to volt), to the ends of resistor I get reading of 2.0 Volts.

From Wiki :

"A resistor is a two-terminal electronic component that produces a voltage across its terminals that is proportional to the electric current through it in accordance with Ohm's law"

so how come I get 2 volts ?

Any help will be appreciated

Thanks
