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

already exists.

Would you like to merge this question into it?

already exists as an alternate of this question.

Would you like to make it the primary and merge this question into it?

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.

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 (MORE)

What will happen to the brightness of a bulb if the length of a wire increases?

If you mean the length of the wire that supplies current to the bulb, the bulb will dim due to increased resistance in the wire, if you make it longer.
