WHAT IS THE CAUSE OF RESISTANCE

Asked by PALLAVI GARG | 8th Jul, 2013, 08:16: PM

Expert Answer:

On a microscopic level, electrons moving through the conductor collide (or interact) with the particles of which the conductor (metal) is made. When they collide, they transfer kinetic energy. The electrons therefore lose kinetic energy and slow down. This leads to resistance.
