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.

- what is electricity
- If the voltmeter reads 0.2 V and the ammeter reads 0.101A, the resistance of the voltmeter is (in ohm) 2 A A
- What is resistance?
- I is directly proportional to V,then V is also proportional to l (is it true)
- what is ohm's law?
- Experiment to verify ohm's law
- Please solve.
- what is the difference between resistance and resistivity of a conductor
- state ohm law draw a circuit diagram to verify ohm's law
- A piece of wire of resistence 20 ohm drawn out to increase its length to twice as original length .calculate its resistence now.
