Phys 122 Assignment 2 Due - Feb.08 Name:___________________________ Print full name Show all work. Include diagrams whenever applicable. Place your solutions in the space below each problem. Highlight or box the final answers. It makes it much easier to mark. All assignment pages have to be stapled together WITH A STAPLER . Include units with your final answers. For resistivity data use your textbook. 1. A potential difference of 12 V is found to produce a current of 0.40 A in a 3.2 m length of wire with a uniform radius of 0.40 cm. a) Calculate the resistance R of the wire. [2 marks] b) What is the resistivity of the wire? [3 marks] 2. A copper cable is designed to carry a current of 300 A with a power loss of 2.00 W/m. What is the required radius of this cable?
