What are non ohmic resistors? Give one example.


Expert Answer

Step 1

The conductors which do not obey Ohm's law are called the non-ohmic conductors or non-linear resistances.

Step 2

In non ohmic resistors there is no linear relationship. Resistance is dynamic in non-ohmic resistors.

Step 3

Temperatures play an important role in affecting the value of current and re...
