Question

# Two metal wires of identical dimensions are connected in series. If σ1 and σ2 are the conductivities of the metals respectively, the effective conductivity of the combination is

A
σ1+σ2
B
σ1+σ22
C
σ1σ2
D
σ1σ2σ1+σ2

Solution

## The correct option is D σ1σ2σ1+σ2 R=R1+R2ρlA=ρ1lA+ρ2lAρ=ρ1+ρ21σ=1σ1+1σ2σ=σ1σ2σ1+σ2Physics
