Resistance resists

Calculate resistance of a wire if the following are given -


\(Mass\) = \(50 g\)


\(Resistivity\) = \(1.8 * 10^{-9} ohm-metre\)


\(Length\) = \( 5 m\)


\(Density\) = \(1.8 * 10^{6} kg/m^{2}\)

Mass=volume×density. Volume=area×length. Resistance=resistivity×length÷area Resistance=resistivity ×length×length÷volume

\(R=\rho\cdot \dfrac{L}{A}\)

We only need to find \(A\). For that, first figure out what the volume is (using density and mass) and then divide it by L to get \(A\).

5*10^{-15}

  • Size of wire = Mass / Density = (50/1000) / (1.8*10^6) = S
  • Resistance = (Resistivity * Length) / Size = (1,810^-95) / S

Can you provide more detailed steps along with the answer? i tried the same method.
