Solution 1

The resistance of a conductor depends upon the following factors:
→ Length of the conductor
→ Cross-sectional area of the conductor
→ Material of the conductor
→ Temperature of the conductor

Solution 2

The resistance of a conductor depends on the following factors:

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