Power = VI

and V =IR => I = V/R

Power = V * V/ R

50 * 10^-3 = V^2 / 2.7*10^3

V^2 = 135

V= 11.62 volt ---answer

Assuming DC circuit.

Ok Ohm's law current is equal to voltage times resistance.

And Power (watts) is equal to voltage times current.

There that's every thing you need to know to figure it out.
