This is a problem that i want to solve but i can't really answer it. It's a sample problem from my book: The density of a copper is 8.89 is 8.89 g/cm^3 and the ρ=1924μΩ-cm. Determine the length(m) and resistance of 12kg of copper; the cross-section of which in 2.09mm^2.

    Copper wire can be considered as a cylinder. Here we have cross section given as 2.09 mm^2 To find length, we need to find the volume We have the density as 8.89 g/ cm^2 Mass= 12 kg Could you find the volume? Do remember to change mass in kg to grams, this will give you volume in cm^3

    density hai mass hai volume= length into cross section you can find length

    Yeah, remember to convert cross section into cm^2, it's given in mm^2 Then you'll get length in cm

    good, now you have the length. You need to find the resistance. Do you have any idea, how to find that?

    resistance? R=v/i ?

  26. ash2326

    Medals 3

    that's right but there is one more relation relating resistance with the property of material and the dimensions of the wire. \[R=\rho(\text{micro ohms-cm}) \times \frac{\text{Length (in cm)}}{\text{Area of cross section(in cm^2)}}\] From this you'll get resistance in micro ohms

    Yeah this is right but this in micro ohms. Divide by 10^6 to get resistance in ohms

  32. alfers101
    • 2 years ago

    why divide it by 10^6 ?

  33. ash2326
    • 2 years ago
    Best Response
    You've already chosen the best response.
    Medals 3

    Because resistance we found is in micro ohms \[1 micro ohm=\frac{1}{10^6} \text{ohms}\]

    Yeah that's all we found length and resistance Wait a min, we need to find length in meters. For that divide length in cm by 100 as 1 meter= 100 cms
