# Effect of resistance (distance) on the voltage of a galvanic cell [closed]

I'm doing an experiment at school on the rate of reaction in galvanic cell so I wanted to question how the length of wires and the addition of different resistors could affect the rate of reaction. I'm a little confused with the fact that if I increase the resistance, according to the equation $$V=IR$$ current will increase. Theoretically does this mean that no matter how much resistance I provide, the voltage will be almost constant? Also, how does this explain the rate of reaction, since current isn't proportional to voltage because resistance is not consistent?

• Do you mean the current will decrease if the resistance increases? @Jess – Tyberius Apr 19 '18 at 18:34
