Calculate resistance of a wire if the following are given -

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

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

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

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

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

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 \(A\).
