On what factors does the resistance of a conductor depend?
clickto share
Solution 1
The resistance of a conductor depends upon the following factors:
→ Length of the conductor
→ Crosssectional area of the conductor
→ Material of the conductor
→ Temperature of the conductor
Solution 2
The resistance of a conductor depends on the following factors:

The resistance of a conductor depends on its length. It is directly proportional to the length, R α l.
 The resistance of a conductor is inversely proportional to its area of crosssection, i.e. R α 1 / A.
 Resistance depends on the nature of the material of the conductor.
 Resistance also depends on the temperature of the conductor.
