# Will an increase of applied voltage decrease the resistance of a copper conductor?

No, the resistance is fixed by the cross section and length of the conductor and does not vary with voltage.

### Will the resistance of a copper conductor decrease with an increase in the applied voltage?

If all environmental conditions remain constant then the resistance will not change appreciably with applied voltage, but the current will increase. An increase in current will raise the temperature of the conductor which will increase the resistance somewhat. Read More

### The resistance of a copper conductor will decrease with an increase of applied voltage?

No, the resistance of a copper conductor does not vary according to applied voltage. It is constant for a given wire size, and only varies with temperature. Of course, current through a conductor causes it to heat, so current, not voltage, indirectly causes a change in resistance. Read More

### What causes current to increase?

A decrease in resistance will cause current to increase with a constant voltage applied. Read More

### Resistance of a copper conductor will decrease with an increase of applied voltage?

Resistance is affected by the length, cross-sectional area, and resistivity of the conductor. The resistivity, in turn, is affected by temperature. So only by changing one of these four factors will the resistance of a conductor change. Changing voltage will have no affect upon the conductor's resistance. Read More

### Does increasing potential difference increase resistance?

Resistance is due to a property specific resistance of material. In no way resistance depends on the voltage applied. This is the case of ordinary conductor. But in case of semi conductor or insulator there may be chances to get a variation of conductance and hence resistance due to potential applied. Read More

### How does electrical resistance change the current in a circuit?

Electrical resistance is opposition to electric current flow. There is a resistance to the flow of current. And a "balance" between applied voltage and resistance determines how much current will flow in a circuit. For a given applied voltage, if we increase the resistance, the current flow will decrease. For that same applied voltage, if we decrease the resistance, the current flow will increase. It's a simple relationship, and it is set down by the… Read More

### When a larger voltage is applied to a conductor does the current increase or decrease?

If you increase the voltage applied to a conductor, the current increases. That is, unless you are talking about stepping up the voltage with a transformer with the intent of distributing it over a long distance to a remote transformer, at which point you would step it back down. In this case, the current would decrease. The above answer to the original question remains valid, however, due to lack of information. Read More

### If power is constant increasing the voltage will increase or decrease current?

### Why is conductor resistance proportional to the length of a wire?

Resistance is caused due to the collision of the moving free electrons in a conductor with the fixed positive ions in the metal when a potential difference is applied across the conductor. As the length increases, the number of collisions by the moving free electrons with the fixed positive ions increases as more number of fixed positive ions are present in an increased length of the conductor. As a result, resistance increases. -Sanjay Read More

### What happens to the acceleration of an object if you increase the force applied to it?

From Newton's Second Law of Motion, I know that Fnet=manet. anet is the net acceleration. From this equation, I know that Fnet is proportional to anet. THis means that if I decrease the net force, I decrease the net acceleration. If I increase the net force, I increase the net acceleration. If your Fnet equation is Fnet=Fapp-Ff, then increasing the applied force would also increase the net acceleration. Therefore, more applied fore, more acceleration. Read More

### Does stranded wires have more resistance than a solid wire?

That depends on the metal composition of the wire, the diameter of the conductor and the amount of energy being applied. In general though a stranded wire of the same composition as a solid wire does not have more resistance. Read More

### Do conductors have resistance?

Yes, all conductors have some amount of resistance although it varies depending on the material that is conducting the electricity. Copper has a very low resistance, and aluminum has a slightly higher (but still quite low) resistance. This is why they are used as electrical conductors. Conductor resistance results in voltage drop over the conductor and power loss, manifested as heating of the conductor. Therefore, you want as low a conductor loss as is reasonably… Read More

### What will happen if DC voltage is given to capacitor?

A capacitor resists a change in voltage. Initially, a capacitor given a DC voltage will appear to have very low resistance, but as current flows and time goes by, the resistance will increase as the voltage approaches the applied voltage. At equilibrium, the voltage across the capacitor will be equal to the applied voltage, the current will be zero, and the resistance will be infinity. Read More

### Why does aluminum conduct a greater voltage than iron?

'Voltage' isn't 'conducted'. Voltage can be thought of as 'electrical pressure' which, when applied across opposite ends of a conductor will cause a CURRENT to flow along that conductor. So your question should really be asking, why aluminium conducts a greater CURRENT than iron. The answer is simple. Aluminium is a better 'conductor' than iron. In other words iron resists the flow of current more than aluminium does. Or to express this in another way… Read More

### As the voltage applied to a circuit increases the current and the what also increase?

Assuming that the resistance of the load stays constant - and that nothing else but the voltage changes - as the voltage applied to a load increases the power taken by that load must also increase. This result comes firstly from Ohm's Law: current = voltage / resistance and secondly from the Power Law: power = voltage x current. Read More

### On the molecular level what causes gas pressure?

### How does the voltage applied to a circuit affect the current flowing through the wire?

Voltage is equal to the Current multiplied by the Resistance. Without changing the resistance, increasing the applied voltage in a circuit will increase current flow. There is a simple, direct relationship between voltage and current. Double the voltage, twice the current will flow. Triple the voltage, and the current will triple. As voltage (E) equals current (I) times resistance (R), when resistance is fixed, what happens to voltage will happen to current. Read More
