# Solution for What Happens to the Resistance as the Conductor is Made Thinner? - CBSE Class 10 - Science

ConceptFactors on Which the Resistance of a Conductor Depends

#### Question

What happens to the resistance as the conductor is made thinner?

#### Solution

The resistance of a wire can be represented by the following equation:

R=(rhol)/A

So, when the conductor is made thinner, its area of cross-section will decrease, since resistance is inversely proportional to the area of the conductor. Therefore, its resistance will increase.

Is there an error in this question or solution?
