On What Factors Does The Resistance Of A Conductor Depend?

Resistance is defined as the opposition to the flow of electrical current through a conductor. The resistance of an electric circuit can be measured numerically. Conductivity and resistivity are inversely proportional. The more the conductive, the less resistance it will have.

Resistance = Potential difference/ Current

The resistance of the conductor depends on the following factors:

  • The temperature of the conductor
  • The cross-sectional area of the conductor
  • Length of the conductor
  • Nature of the material of the conductor
