A wire is streched 0.1% longer. find the percent change in resistance? I missed the class in which the teacher taught this topic so i'm totally blank. He gave a formula that for length you should apply R=2(value) drived from R = L^2 And for given radius , area or diameter you should apply R=4(value) drived from R=1/r^4 What do these formulae mean and are they even used? btw I'm doing MCAT, so anything short would be useful.

Resistance = \(\rho\)L/A Change in Resistance = \(\rho\)(Change in Length)/A In other words, 0.1% increase in length should result in about 0.1% increase in resistance. Change in Resistance = -\(\rho\)L(Change in Area)/A^2 = -(Original Resistance)(Change in A)/A

That should be it. but the answer in my notebook is .2% they used a formula R= 2(percent change in length) i don't know why.

Perhaps \(\rho = 2\)?

Right. Just a plausible theory.

Then any suggestion how to solve and get the answer 0.2%?

Nope. Just use the secret formula. You don't have time to worry about it on the MCAT. You either get it quickly and move on or you just move on.
