    You can use the ohms law to find the current using the voltage and resistance. What would the resistance of a circuit be without resistors? I'm using relatively short copper wire.

    Nearly everything has some resistance even a short length of large copper wire.

    It would be safe to say that absolutely everything has some resistance except for superconductors (by definition).
