Is potential difference is directly proptional to resistance?

Is potential difference is directly proptional to resistance? (atanu asks)

Answer:

For a constant current, the potential difference is directly proportional to the resistance included in the circuit.

For a given conductor at constant temperature, resistance is a constant and the potential difference across it is directly proportional to the current passed through it.
