Is there an equationg for for finding how much current is drawn from a power source?

I know how to find total resistance etc so thats fine, but is it to do with conductance etc?

P = IV i think. so if you know the voltage, you can find the current drawn. also, V=IR will help as well i think. but i dunno anything about conductance

Damn...I know this one. Current would be the amp...or watts. Help me help you....are looking for volts, watts, amps, or what?

Well i've got the p.d of the power supply : 6volts and theres a 5 ohm resistor going into a parralel set up of 4 and 6 ohms which ill get back to you in a second about how many ohms that is in total

EDIT: I think its just

V=6
R= 0.81

P=IV
To find I use v= I R which is the same as I= 6/7.4 = 0.81C

P= 0.81 x 6 = 4.86 W
