Question

Which has more resistance:    

 a thick piece of nichrome wire or a thin piece?

Solution

A thin piece of nichrome wire has more resistance because the resistance of a conductor is inversely proportional to its area of cross-section, i.e. R α 1 / A. The lesser the area of cross-section, the more the resistance.

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
