Practical: Factors affecting R (nichrome)

IB Physics: Practical: Factors affecting R (nichrome)

In this practical the resistance of samples of nichrome wire will be measured with a multimeter and the resistivity of nichrome calculated.The resistance of a cylinder of metal is given by the formulaR=ρL/AWhere R= Resistanceρ = ResistivityL = LengthA= Cross sectional areaConnect two leads to the multimeter, there are usually 3 sockets on a multimeter, make sure you connect to "com" and Ω. The resistance of the wire...
