how can resistance be useful and where can they be useful?
-- Resistance can be useful among the population of a repressive government.
Although it can be dangerous for those who resist, it can also exert pressure
against the regime to alter its repressive practices.

known numerical values of resistance are used to divide voltage, limit current, and
dissipate controlled amounts of electrical energy.
