Introduction: Today’s laboratory experiment consisted in studying the different factors  that may affect the resistance of a conductor. We learned that the four main factors that  alter the resistance of a conductor are it’s length, cross-sectional area, type of material,  and temperature. In this experiment we measured the resistance of different materials,  with different length, and different cross-sectional area. To do this, we used a current  and voltage sensor to calculate the resistance, using the formula I=V/R. Then we just
