### How does a resistance of a wire depend on its radius?

Resistance is inversely-proportional to the cross-sectional
area of a conductor. For example, doubling its
cross-sectional area will halve its resistance, while halving its
cross-sectional area will double its resistance.
Since the cross-sectional area of a circular-section conductor
is proportional to the square of its radius, doubling that
radius will reduce its resistance by one quarter, while halving its
radius will quadruple its resistance.

### What is 100 pounds per square foot?

100 pounds per square foot (also denoted 100 psf) is most likely
a pressure value. Think of it as having a block of steel 1 ft by 1
ft, weight of 100 pounds, and placing it on a flat surface. The
pressure on the flat surface from the block of steel equally
distributed over the 1 square foot area is 100 psf.
