Why alloys like Manganin, Constantan, Nichrome are used for making wire bound standard resistors?

Expert Answer:

Temperature dependence of resistivity of these alloys is very low. That means, their resistance value would change very little with temperature. That’s why these alloys are used for making wire bound standard resistors.
