Question

 Will current flow more easily through a thick wire or a thin wire of the same material when connected in the same source? Give reason for your answer.
 


Solution

Current will flow more easily through a thick wire because the resistance is inversely proportional to the area of cross-section of the wire. Which means when the area of cross section of the wire increases then resistance decreases or vice versa
