The voltage - length characteristic of a direct current arc in an arc welding process is $$V=$$ $$(100+40l),$$ where $$l$$ is the length of the arc in $$mm$$ and $$V$$ is arc voltage in volts. During a welding operation, the arc length varies between $$1$$ and $$2$$ $$mm$$ and the welding current is the range $$200$$-$$250A$$. Assuming a linear power source, the short circuit current is _____________$$A.$$

During a $$TIG$$ welding process, the arc current and arc voltage were $$50$$ $$A$$ and $$60$$ $$V,$$ respectively, when the welding speed was $$150$$ $$mm/min.$$ In another process, the $$TIG$$ welding is carried out at a welding speed of $$120mm/min$$ at the same arc welding voltage and heat input to the material so that weld quality remains the same. The welding current (in $$A$$) for this process is
