Given Info: The wire has length 3.00 m and cross sectional area 0.450 mm2 , the wire has resistance 41.0 N at 20.0 °C and 41.4 N at 29.0 °C. Explanation: Formula to calculate the temperature coefficient of resistance is R-Ro Ro(T–To) Ris the resistance at some temperature T, Ro is the resistance at some reference temperature To, a is the temperature coefficient of resistivity of wire,
