  1. An experiment to investigate the effects of different lengths of wire on resistance

    Below in table 1 are the results from our preliminary work. Table 1 Length of wire (cm) Voltage (V) Current (A) Resistance (?) 15 1.37 0.39 3.51 25 1.28 0.30 5.01 35 1.56 0.24 6.50 45 1.30 0.17 8.20 From my results, we chose a range of lengths from 15cm

  2. Objective: to investigate how the rate of resistance is affected by the different thicknesses ...

    If the material of the wire is not good at conducting electricity then the resistance will be greater compared to a wire which the material is good at conducting electricity. 4. Temperature Temperature affects the resistance in a circuit because if a wire is hot, the atoms will vibrate uncontrollably
