What would you like to do?

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.

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

What would happen to an eletrical current if the length of wire was decreased?

Lets say the resistance of copper wire is 1 ohm per meter and the wire is 10 meters long then resistance of wire is 10 ohms* If we then theoretically take the resistance of th

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 resi

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

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

What is happening when an electric current in a wire increases but the resistance stays the same?

The power consumed in any circuit is calculated by the formula P=V x I and as per ohms law we know that V=I x R, so placing the value of this Voltage in the power consumption
