Textbook Problem

If a certain silver wire has a resistance of 6.00 Ω at 20.0°C, what resistance will it have at 34.0°C?

To determine
The resistance of silver wire at 34.0°C

Explanation

Given Info: The resistance of silver wire at 20.0°C is 6Ω .

Explanation:

Formula to calculate the resistance at 34.0°C is,

R=R0(1+α(TT0))

  • R is the resistance at some temperature T ,
  • R0 is the resistance at some reference temperature T0 ,
  • α is the temperature coefficient of resistivity of silver,

Substitute 6.0Ω for R0 , 3.8×103(°C)1 for α , 34
