#### exists and is an alternate of .

resistance is directly proportional to wire length and inversely proportional to wire cross-sectional area. In other words, If the wire length is doubled, the resistance is doubled too. If the wire diameter is doubled, the resistance will reduce to 1/4 of the original resistance.

# As a wire increases in length what happens to the resistance in the circuit?

the resistance can never increase or decrease....... (you can't open the resistor and take out the something and make the resistance increase or decrease) Answer Since

# What happens to the current of the wire when the length increases?

the current decreases

# What happens to the resistance when the length of the wire changes?

ERMM THE RESISTANCE INCREASES ) when longer

# What happens when you increase the length of wire?

The area of crossection decreases.If the wire is not ductile, the wire breaks.As resistance is directly proportional to length, the resistance of the wire increases.

# As a wire increase in thickness what happens to the resistance?

The resistance is indirectly proportional to the cross sectional area (thickness) so if the CSA doubles the resistance halves e.t.c In a nutshell as it gets thicker the res

# Suppose a wire of resistance R could be stretched uniformly until it was twice its original length. What would happen to its resistance?

Current tends to travel on the surface of the wire. As you decrease the cross-sectional area of a wire the resistance increases. That is why larger wires are rated for higher

Nothing happens.

It increases

# What will happen to the resistance if the length of the conductor increase?

increase in resistance.

# What would happen if the length of wire increase what happens to the capacitance?

capacitance also increase

# What happens to voltage when wire length increase?

When the length of the wire increases voltage drop across the wire will occur. There are two factors that can result in voltage drop. One diameter of the wire, two length o

# Why does the length of wire increases resistance?

-- A piece of wire behaves like a resistor. Granted, its resistance is very small, but it has some. -- Another piece of wire behaves like another resistor. Granted, its r

In what sense.

# What would happen if the length of wire increase what happens to frequency?

frequecy will not change

# What will happen to the resistance of a wire if it is stretched to increase its length by 2 times?

Actually resistance is directly proportional to the length provided area remains constant. But as we stretch the wire only its volume would remain constant. So its area is to

# What happens to the resistance of the wire when its length is increased to twice its original length?

Doubling the length of a wire doubles the resistance value of thewire. It is equivalent to placing resistors in series where thetotal resistance value is the sum of all the re
