Lesson 3.3 Homework Solutions 1. A 0.9-V potential difference is maintained across a 1.5 m length of tungsten wire that has a cross-sectional area of 0.6 mm 2 . What is the current in the wire? (6.5 A) Area of cross section of the wire is: A = 0.6 mm 2 = 0.6 × 10 -6 m 2 8 6 1.5 5.5 10 0.1375 0.6 10 0.9 0 5 . 7 6. 13 5 l R A V I R A ρ - - = = × × = × = = = 2. A metal wire of resistance R is stretched to 1.5 times its original length. What is the resistance of the stretched wire? (2.25R) Resistance r of a wire of length L and area of cross section A is: L R A ρ = When the wire is stretched, its volume does not change. If A is the original cross-sectional area and A’ the area of cross section after the stretching, then the original volume = LA Volume after stretching = 1.5L A’ LA = 1.5LA’ ' 1.5 A A = If R’ is the resistance of the stretched wire, 1.5 1.5 ' 2.25 ' / 5 2.25 1.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
