Why resistance will increase to 3 times when length is increased 3 times and will not increase to 9 times?
Asked by ms0851000 | 11th Mar, 2019, 05:38: PM
R = ρ l/ A ... (1)
If l increases by 3 times then the changed resistance Rc is given as,
Rc = ρ(3 l)/ A
Thus, this can be written as,
Rc = 3(ρl/ A) ... (2)
From (1) and (2),
Rc = 3 R
Hence, resistance increases by 3 times with an increase in its length by 3 times.
Also, from the formula, it is clear that resistance is directly proportional to the length of the wire.

- If the resistance is doubled then the length also doubled but your in your MCQ quiz the but the length is l/2
- explain ohms law
- To find rarional btw potential difference and current
- A resistance wire made from German silver has a resistance of 4.25 ohm. Calculate the resistance oi another wire, made from the same material such that its length increased by 4times and area decreased by 3times.
- define ohms law
- Please find the attached question,
- How many 176 ohm resistors ( in parallel) are required to carry 5A on a 220V line?
- A battery of 9V is connected in series with resistors of 0.2 ,0.3, 0.4, 0.5, and 12 . How much current would flow through the 12 resistor?
- A bulb is rated as 60W , 220V . what does it mean?
