Question

What happens to the resistance when  the conductor is made thicker?
 


Solution

The resistance of the wire will decrease if we make  the conductor thicker because 
R space equals space rho L over A

(Where A= area of cross-section or thickness of wire)

. We know that area is directly proportional to the radius of the wire and inversely proportional to resistance.
