In physics, Ohm's law says that current through a wire, $I$, is directly proportional to voltage, $V$, and inversely proportional to resistance, $R$:

I = V/R

It's also true that resistance is directly proportional to the length of the wire. We have a piece of wire. We pass $500$ volts through this wire and measure $25$ milliamps of current. If I cut the wire in half and pass $175$ volts through it, how many milliamps of current will I measure?
