# 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.

# What happens to the current of the wire when the length increases?

the current decreases

# What happens to the resistance when the length of the wire changes?

ERMM THE RESISTANCE INCREASES ) when longer

# What happens when you increase the length of wire?

The area of crossection decreases.If the wire is not ductile, the wire breaks.As resistance is directly proportional to length, the resistance of the wire increases.

# 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…stance decreases.with regards to the formula :R=PL/A. R=resistance, P=resistivity, L=length, A=area.

# 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 a wire as the resistance increases?

Nothing happens.

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

It increases

# What will happen to the resistance if the length of the conductor increase?

increase in resistance.

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

capacitance also increase

# 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 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.

# 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 the wire when its length is increased to twice its original length?

Doubling the length of a wire doubles the resistance value of the wire. It is equivalent to placing resistors in series where the total resistance value is the sum of all …the resistors.
