I don't know if anybody's particularly interested in this, but.

Another thread got me thinking about if V/R=0[zero]. When V is not zero.

In other words no current flows from a voltage source with nothing connected across it.

So to find the value of R, R=V/0[zero].

So the divide by zero illegal function comes up. I've always prefered to think division by zero to equal infinity. Which would satisfy this equation (as it would many others). 1/(10 to the -23) is a big number.

The smaller the divisor the larger the quotient. Until, reasonably, you reach X/0=infinity.

The only problem I see is that infinity times zero is not a rational argument. But if that's the case why not put the illegal function there instead of at divide by zero?

I know you're at least raising an eyebrow Charlie B.
