The electrical resistivities of four materials P, Q, R and S are given below:
Which material will you use for making: (a) heating element of electric iron (b) connecting wires of electric iron (c) covering of connecting wires? Give reason for your choice in each case.
Material S will be used for making the heating element of an electric iron as it has a high resistivity .
Material Q will be used for making the connecting wires of an electric iron as it has a low resistivity
Material R will be used for making the covering of the connecting wires as it has an extremely high resistivity.
