Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I had a smiliar problem expect I was asked to find the R. I used R= (Delta V ^2 x time)/mc(T2T1)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0My bad, that's not the correct formula for this type of problem. You aren't given the potential difference.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[R _{t}=R _{0}+\alpha t\] \[R _{t}R _{0}=\alpha t\] 3  1.5 = 0.00375 * t Now solve for t

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Raising the temperature needs to double the resistance. 1.5 ohms * 2 = 3 ohms
