Relation Between Electrical Current and Length of Conductor

Physics / April 23, 2015 / No Comments /
Report of an experiment investigating the relationship between the resistance of an electrical current through a homogeneous and isotropic conductor under constant temperature and pressure, and the length of the conductor.

“It was determined that with the resistivity r and area A of the conductor, the resistance R is a function of length L using the equation

R = rL/A

This original lab contains a full theoretical background with all derived equations explained in detail. It utilizes several color graphics to illustrate the conduction of an electrical current, and it has a complete table and graph of all experimental data.”
