Question

Suppose the resistance of a wire varies inversely as the area of its cross-section. Write a relation between resistance and area of cross-section

Open in App
Solution

Suppose the radius of the wire is r. Then the area of its cross-section is πr2. If R is the resistance, we are given
R1πr2
Hence
R=kπr2 or k=Rπr2.
