How does the attachment relate to this question? What is "a"?

P=vi
v=iR,

so:

P=Ri^2,

or:

i=sqrt(P/R)=sqrt(10^6/10^2)=100 amps

Though CaptainBlack is doubtless correct in his solution I would like to point out to Greg that you need to use units!
$P = 10^6$ W? kW? mW? Some other unit? We just don't know!

Oh, and since I'm ranting ( ) the unit for resistance is "Ohms" with a capital "O" because it is named for a person.
