Unformatted text preview: Direction of current: the nature of charge carriers does not matter! A certain wire has resistance R. Another wire, of the same material, has half the length and half the diameter of the first wire. The resistance of the second wire is: A) R/4 B) R/2 C) R D) 2R E) 4R Two wires are made of the same material and have the same length but different radii. They are joined end-to-end and a potential difference is maintained across the combination. Of the following the quantity that is the same for both wires is: A) potential difference B) current C) current density D) electric field E) none of the above...
