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.

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

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

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

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 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
