Question

How does the resistance of a wire vary with its: 

 diameter? 

 

Solution

We know that the area of cross-section, A =  πr2 = π (d / 2)2, where r is the radius and d is the diameter of the wire. So on increasing the diameter of the wire, its resistance decreases.

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
