6 m length oF a
certain type oF wire has a resistance oF 0

12 Ω.
What is the total resistance oF the 115 m oF
this wire he plans to use to wire a house?
Correct answer: 23 Ω.

Suppose that a uniForm wire oF resistance
R
is stretched uniFormly to
N
times its original
length.
Assume the total volume oF the wire re
mains the same, and the volume is given by
the product oF the cross sectional area and the
length. Denote the original area by
A
and the
area aFter the stretch by
A
