What unit is used to measure resistance
What unit is used to measure current
In a wire . . . . . ampere
In a river . . . . . mile per hour
More detail for the electrical answer
The ampere, often abbreviated to amp or A.
The unit is named after the French physicist André Marie Ampère.
A current of 1A is equal to 1 coulomb of charge passing a point in 1 second.
The ampere is the unit of current. It is approximately 6.24 × 1018 electrons passing a given point each second. See the Related Link shown below for more detail.

Two hundred liters of gas at zero degrees Celsius are kept under a pressure of 150 kPa The temperature of the gas is raised to 273 degrees Celsius and the pressure is increased to 600 kPa New temp
The apparent change in the frequency of a sound emitted by a moving object as it passes a stationary observer is called the what effect
A transformer has 150 turns on the primary coil and is connected to a 120 volt power source How many turns will be needed on the secondary coil to provide a secondary voltage of 600 volts
600 volts is five times the 120 volt primary, so the secondary winding must have 750 turns, which is five times as many turns as the 150 turns of the primary winding.

The current would be about 20 volts.
The speed of sound in water is 1430 meters per second Find the wavelength of a sound with a frequency of 286 Hz traveling through the water
What is the speed of a sound wave that has a wavelenght of 102 meters and a frequency of 250hz
speed = wavelength * frequency wavelength = 102 meters
frequency = 250 Hz = 250 cycles/second
