Step 1

Resistance is the basic nature of any substance. It is the nature of material to oppose the flow of current.

SI unit of resistance is ohm.

Practically all the wires possess some resistance which can be calculated by the basic formula

1
R p
A
where p is resistivity expressed in Qm
Iis length expressed in m
A is cross sectional area expressed in m2
