    Need to find armature current in a 200v dc motor when started without any current limiting resistors armature circuit resistance 0.2 ohms and shunt field resistance 200 ohms.

    Is it as simple as dividing the voltage by armature resistance?

    You've got the idea.

    That's the reason one normally starts DC motors with a softly softly approach.
