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

# What happen to the resistance of metallic wire if it is heatedExplain?

Its resistance increases. This is because of vibrations of the core of atoms and so they have got good influence over the movement of electrons. So conductivity gets reduced a…nd so resistance increases. This is what we call positive temperature coefficient

# When a wire is made smaller the resistance increases. Which happens to the electric current?

the current decreases

# 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.

# 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 …be decreased as length increases. V = pi r^2 * L Now we have R = K * L / pi r^2 Multiplying numerator and denominator by L we get R = K/V * L^2 So resistance is found to be proportional to square of length Hence as length gets increased by 2 times, its resistance value would increase by 4 times.

# What happens to the resistance of a conductor wire as the temperature of the wire increases?

It increases

# What happens to voltage when resistance is increased?

When we increase the resistance the voltage is also increases.........

# What will happen if the resistance of the conductor increased?

Assuming that there is a potential difference across the conductor, then the value of the current will fall (I = E/R).

# 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…esistance is also very small, but it has some. -- When you twist one end of each piece of wire together, you get a longer wire. Also, electrically, you have connected two resistors in series. As you know, the total resistance of resistors connected in series is the sum of the individual resistances, and is greater than either single resistance alone.

# 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 …currents.

# What happens to resistivity of a wire when it is double folded?

Nothing. Resistivity is a physical characteristic of a material. It's not affected by its shape, etc.

# 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) Since resist…ance is directly proportional to the length of a conductor, increasing the length of a wire will increase its resistance. For example, if you double its length, you will double its resistance.

# When a wire is made smaller the resistance increases what happens to the electics current?

as with any electrical system if resistence is increases then current and voltage will be reduced.

# 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 of …the wire. Voltage drop increases with increase in length of wire, whereas voltage drop decreases with increase in diameter (cross section area) of the wire. G.RAO Answer If you are asking what happens to the voltage across a length of wire when its length increases, the answer is nothing happens! The voltage applied to the wire is determined by the supply, not by the load (i.e. the wire).

# Why does the resistance of wire increase as you increase the length?

Wire has a specific resistance per distance. So if you increase the distance, the resistance of that particular wire will be greater.

# What happens to insulation resistance when increasing cable length?

The insulation resistance remains the same throughout the entire length of the conductor.

# If the current increases what happens to resistance?

An increase in current will only affect resistance if it causes the temperature of the conductor to change. For pure metallic conductors, and increase in temperature will caus…e an increase in resistance.

# What happens to resistivity of a wire if it is double-folded?

Nothing. Resistivity is independent of a conductors size or shape.
