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

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)
