Why electrical resistivity of metals alloys increases with degree of cold working?
Resistance is due to scattering of conduction electrons. A metallic crystal can be viewed simplistically as a periodic array of ions with a cloud of delocalised conduction elections. The electrons do not scatter of the ions themselves because the crystal is periodic. There are two significant causes of scattering: 1. scattering off vibrations of the atomic lattice (phonons). This contribution to the resistivity is proportional to temperature. 2. scattering off defects in the crystal. At low temperature, this is the cause of a finite 'residual resistivity'. The two terms add linearly Rtotal = R1(T) + R2 Cold working a metal will introduce defects and thus lead to an increase in R2. Conversely, annealling the metal at high temperature will remove defects and reduce the residual resistivity.

The mechanism of metallic resistance : as temperature increases the thermal vibrations in the lattice increase causing more electron scattering therefore more collisions will take place, slowing down the electron flow. This increases the rate of transfer of electrical energy by heating and increases… the electrical resistance. The semiconductor's electrons also vibrate more at higher temperature so this contributes to resistance increase in the same way as for a metal. So what else could make the semiconductor conduct better? The answer is: more charge carriers. Whereas the number of free electrons in a metal is constant the effect of heating a semiconductor frees additional electrons (and holes). For silicon in this temperature range the effect of additional charge carriers outweighs the effect of additional vibrations, so the overall resistance will decrease with temperature. (MORE)
An alloy is any metal which contains atoms from more than one kind of element. Examples include: brass (made of copper and zinc), bronze (made from copper and tin) and steels (made from iron and a combination of other elements).
Metals are conductive, but are not perfect conductors and so they have some electrical resistance. How the resistance of the metal is affected by "thickness" depends on what you mean by thickness.. If the electrical current has to flow through a longer piece of metal, then the resistance of the met…al to electrical flow would be greater.. However, if you take that same length of metal and increase the area of the metal by increasing its "thickness", then the resistance of the metal becomes less. (MORE)

Alloying of a metal is when you mix one metal with another thus forming an alloy.
The symbol representing resistance in electrical information is the last letter of the Greek alphabet omega.

When there is an electric currect does the resistance of a wire increase when the termperature does?
When the temperature of any material is raised, the molocules move more rapidly and are pushed apart from eachother. This increased gap between molocules also increases resistance.
no they do not, actually for the most part they have an inverse relationship with temperature. as temperature increases, conductivity goes down.
Yes, different metals resist the flow of electric current by different amounts. This property of the material is called its resistivity , and is measured in ohm-metres (Î© m). You can measure the resistivity by taking a wire of length L and cross-sectional area A, and measuring the resistance …along it. You can measure the resistance by measuring the current and the voltage along the wire. If you apply a voltage V (in volts, V) along the length of the wire, and measure the resulting current as I (in amps, A), then the resistance R (in ohms, Î©) is given by: R = I / V The resistivity of the material (in ohm-metres) is given by: Ï = R A / L = resistance (ohms) x cross-sectional area of wire (square metres) / length of wire (metres) Typical values for the resistivity at 20 degrees Celsius range from the order of 10 -8 Î© m (for conductors such as copper or silver) to 10 13 Î© m (for insulators such as hard rubber), or even higher.

1. Gold alloys are resistant to moisture. 2. Gold alloys are good conductors of electricity.
Metals are elements and alloys are a homogeneous mixture of metals or metal and non-metal. Therefore, no metal is an alloy. However, some common metal alloys are: . alnico - aluminum, nickel, copper . duralumin - copper and aluminium . Woods metal - lead, tin and cadmium . bronze - copper and t…in . brass - copper and zinc . rose gold - copper and gold . solder - lead and tin . steel - iron and carbon, often other metals as well . stainless steel - iron, carbon, chromium and other metals (MORE)
Why temperature increases resistivity of metal increases while resistivity of semiconductor decreases?
Temprature increase the resistivity of a metal as electrons has to travel further against the thermal temprature as increase in temprature will increase the diffussion of electrons while in semi conductor this is dependent on the electric field intensity and charge carrier either n type or p type.
Because the molecules in metal are slower when cold and therefore let electricity run through it easier.
There is no one single answer to your question as various alloying materials will achieve this. There are also various forms of fatigue failure, for instance thermal and bending, which will be affected by what alloying material is present.
Electrical resistance increases because the density of charge carriers decreases with increased temperature. High temperature resistivity is predominantly characterized by collisions between electrons and metal atoms. Decreasing the density of charge carriers increases resisistance.
They are not always. Pure metals like gold never rust. Aluminum is also very corrosion resistant and its alloys not necessarily more so. Chromium is another metal that is extremely corrosion resistant and is alloyed with Iron and carbon to make a type of stainless steel.
Alloys are used rather than pure metals in electrical heating devices since they have low electrical conductivity and also a low melting point. Usually the alloys don't have a single melting point; they have a range of melting points. The temperature at which melting begins is called the SOLIDUS and… the temperature at which melting is complete is called the LIQUIDUS. (MORE)
In metal, we know charge carriers are free electron.so,when external potential difference is applied to metal,then electron gets accelerated,but the particles(ion) from which the metal is made starts opposes the flow of electron. Because collision are the basic cause of resistance.when the electron… gets accelerated that means the electron start moving which means the electron have some kinetic energy so, when the electron collide with the particle(or ion) then the energy is transferred. the electron loses some of the energy and result the electron is slow down.This leads to resistance.this transferred energy causes the resistors to heat up. FOR EXAMPLE- IF YOU TOUCH YOUR CELLPHONE'S CHARGER DURING CHARGING, YOU FEEL WARM BECAUSE WHEN THE ELECTRON COLLIDE WITH THOSE ION FROM WHICH MATERIAL IS MADE,THEN THE ENERGY IS TRANSFERRED, THIS TRANSFERRED ENERGY CAUSES THE RESISTORS TO HEAT UP.

Resistance of a conductor is defined by the specific resistivity,area of cross section and the length of the conductor. R = rL/A,where R is resistance in OHMs, r is specific resistance, L lengthin mm, A is area of cross section in sq mm
I thought the resistance of a material, with few exceptions, increased with temperature. Anyone else want to chime in???
An alloy is a metal made by mixing more than one metal, so any metal you use in your daily life is an alloy.
It is not a right perception to think that alloys have high resistivity. Alloys can have high resistivity or low resistivity than the actual elements. You might be thinking that alloys have high resistivity as many resistors are made of alloys. But by altering the composition of elements, we ca…n also make an alloy of very low resistivity. (MORE)
An electric heater is stretched to increase its length by 25 percent what is the increase in resistance?
In this case, the resistance will increase in inverse proportion to the wires new diameter, and in direct proportion to the wires new length.
you doing materials and manufacturing at ECU aswell? let us know the answer is you found it out already. cheers
Yep. Simple steel is the most obvious. Iron mixed with a touch of carbon makes a harder alloy than pure iron.
The presence of impurities and alloying elements decrease the electrical conductivity of most of the metals.. Hence thereby the alloying of metals increase the resistivity of metals and decrease its electrical conductivity.. But rarely.,, certain magnetic alloys increase its conductivity.
It will never stop it will always keep going unless we have a power outage . Not true - but you was right in a sense. With house wiring it will stop when it get to 50 bellow zero or better then you have to go with gold wiring then again that may not work.
this becos an increase in temp causes the immobile electrons to collide with the conductin electron thereby incresing resistance since conductivity is reduced
When temperature of metal is raised, kinetic energy of the atoms of its crystal increases, and it is available in form of vibrations. So when electrons flow, the probability of collision with atom increases. Due to this, Resistance increases.
Resistance is a phenomena that restricts the flow of electrons in the metal. The current of electrons travels along the surface of the metal wire. Increased temperature basically agitates the atoms that comprise the wire and electrons are more impeded in their travel along the wire. The minimum resi…stance is achieved as the temperature approaches absolute zero. (MORE)
If the voltage is kept constant then increasing the resistance decreases the current. Resistance and current are inversely proportional.
Don't think you've understood the word. An alloy is a mix of metals. Bronze for instance is an alloy consisiting of copper and tin.
Alloy wires of copper and nickel come in many varieties and are sometimes called cupro-nickels. They can be found containing: . Copper with 10% nickel . Copper with 30% nickel . Copper with 25% nickel with 0.05-0.4% manganese . Copper with 45% nickel (also known as constantan) Alloy wire… containing both copper and nickel retain their strength at elevated temperatures compared to copper alloys without nickel. Also, they are beneficial in outstanding resistance to corrosion, particularly from sea water. (MORE)
cupro-nickel is the term referring to copper / nickel alloys. The particular alloy used in electrical resistors has 45% nickel, and is called constantan . See related link.
It appears that Plutonium has the lowest conductivity (highest resistance) of all the metals, at 106 /Ohm*cm. This information comes from the link below.
The Current in an Electrical Circuit Increase as Resistance Decreases: I = E/R, Current = Voltage Divided By Resistance, therefore as R decreases I increases.
Aabsolutely the resistance on any given wire is a combination of mainly two factors. The first factor is the material your conductor is made of and while almost anything conducts some level of electricity, metals are by far the best conductors with copper being the winner as far as corrosion, conduc…tivity, ease of use, and, of course, cost effectiveness are concerned. So we know the first factor in the resistance on any given electrical circuit is the material it is made out of the second main factor is the length of that material. The resistance adds up the longer the run is. So the longer your piece of wire is the greater your resistance is. Now the wraps do not in of themselves add to the resistance of the circuit, but by adding more wraps you are adding length to your conductor thereby increasing its resistance. (MORE)
The name of the mineral that is added to steel in order to increase rust resistance, is chromium. Chromium is a very hard and brittle type of mineral that resist tarnishing and takes a high polish.
There are various ways: add a potentiometer; add actual resistors or add more bulbs or higher voltage bulbs.
How well would an alloy work if it were made of all of the metals with the traits they have the highest ability in?
That wouldn't work. The process of forming metallic alloys is not just a combination of the traits of the constituent metals. Each metal has an effect on the properties of the other metals with which it is alloyed. It's all about the kind of bonds that are formed.
No, the resistance in a circuit does not change when voltage changes. Resistance is an inherent property of the circuit.
Ohm's Law Voltage = Current x Resistance. So for a fixed voltage as R decreases then current increases proportionally.
Converting pure metals into alloys usually increases the strength of metals. This is because when two pure metals are made into an alloy, a chemical reaction which is harder to break usually occurs.
Because the atoms in the metal move around faster and faster as the temperature increases making it harder for the free electrons to flow smoothly from atom to atom and conversely, the resistance decreases as temperature falls because the atoms in the metal become more and more stationary and thus t…he free electrons can easily flow smoothly from atom to atom.

Resistance is an electrical phenomenon. When you send electricity into a resistor, less goes out the "outlet lead" than went in the "inlet lead." The difference between inlet and outlet is dissipated as heat. If you're building a radio or something, excess heat isn't good. Sometimes you want the hea…t, so to get as much as you can you use a massive resistor. (MORE)
Because alloys have better mechanical properties, better resistanceto corrosion, to high temperatures, the crystalline structure ismore stable etc.
it is similar to that of heating a metal heating a metal leads to increase in resistance thus both laser shot or heating are form of heat transfer that leads the atoms to higher energy states causing random movement of electrons vigorously which increases resistance
What is the metal that is a good conductor of electricity and two of its alloys are brass and bronze?
Brass is an alloy of copper and zinc. Bronze is analloy of copper and tin. Copper is a very good conductor of electricity.
Most electrical wires use unalloyed copper. The exception ishigh-power overhead lines that use aluminium for its low density,which means there is a lot less mass for the towers to support, sothey are lighter and less expensive. Aluminium overhead cables are either ACSR - aluminium core, steelreinfo…rced, which uses multi-strand cables with steel strands inthe centre; or AAAC which is all-aluminimum alloy conductor. AAAC cables use an aluminium-magnesium-silicon alloy with silicon0.5-0.9%, magnesium 0.6-0.9%, iron 0.5% max, copper 0.1%, manganese0.03%, chromium 0.03%, zinc 0.1%, boron 0.06%. The purpose ofadding other elements is to increase the tensile strength of theconductors so they can be tensioned up without too much dangling. (MORE)
