The resistance of a wire does not depend on the area of its cross-section.
Length of conductor
Area of cross-section
We know that, resistance, R=ρLA Hence, the resistance of a wire is inversely proportional to the area of its cross-section.
Thus, the given statement is false.
How does the resistance of conductor depend on: (a) length of the contuctor? (b) area of cross -section of hte conductor? (c) temperature of the conductor
