The electrical resistance R of a wire varies dirctly as its length L and inversely as the square of its diameter. A wire 20 meters long and 0.6 centimeters in diameter made from a certain alloy has a resistance of 36 ohms. What is the resistance of a piece of wire 60 meters long and 1.2 centimeters in diameter made from the same material? My answer is 24 ohms because of wire size and length. Thanks for checking my answer.
