I hear people say things like "I only put 5 amps through the circuit but I put a bunch of volts". I don't understand how this is possible if V=IR. Lets say you have a circuit with 5 ohms of resistance so V=I(5). The amount of voltage and current I am allowed to put through it has to be proportional.
Can anyone can give a good intuitive answer (don't go too in depth with math) that is understandable?
