    The Length of a Wire Affects Its Resistance Scientific Enquiry: I know that metals are good conductors of electricity. Metals are good conductors because their electrons are easily released allowing electricity to flow. The electrons can carry current because they split up from the positive ions, so they are free to move and to carry current. Factors that affect resistance: 1. Length – the longer the wire the more atoms there are for the current to push through. 2. Width –

    Investigating the Factors that Affect the Resistance of a Wire Aim To study the factors which affect the resistance of a wire. Background Information Although current and potential difference measure different things, they are related to each other. In 1826, Georg Ohm discovered that doubling the p.d. doubled the current. (Taken from Ohm's Law: the current flowing through a metal wire is proportional to the potential difference across it (providing the temperature is constant)

    How Thickness and Length Affect the Resistance of a Wire I plan to investigate how the length and thickness of a wire affects the resistance. I plan to do this by keeping the voltage the same by using a variable resistor and measure the current when varied lengths and thicknesses of wire is in a circuit ===================================================================== Variables ========= There are a few factors that can affect the resistance. These are; * Temperature

    Investigating the Factors that Affect the Resistance of a Wire Aim: My aim is to find out how the length affects the resistance of a wire. Safety: § I should not leave the power coming from the batteries on the wire for too long as this will cause heating and might burn. § Be careful when touching the wire, as it may be hot. § I should just leave the batteries connected to the wire only for a short time, as I only need to take a reading and take it off. § I should be careful

    Factors Which Affect the Resistance of a Wire To start off this experiment I feel that it is suitable to explain the main facts of this study. Below is a section explaining the resistance in detail. Facts on Resistance: I have shown how resistance occurs. · WIRE · ATOMS · ELECTRONS Resistance occurs when the electrons traveling along the wire collide with the atoms of the wire. These collisions slow down the flow of electrons causing resistance. Resistance is a measure

    Investigating Which Factors Affects the Resistance in a Circuit Aim – To investigate which factors that will affect the resistance in an circuit. Factors – All these things might affect the aim * Material the current passes through * Temperature of wire * Length of wire * Thickness of wire We will change the length and thickness of the wire each time, staring with a set length then changing the thickness, and then starting with a set thickness will we change the length. We

    Wire Affect the Resistance in a Circuit Hypothesis: I predict that; the longer the wire, the more resistance there will be. So if the length of the wire were to double, so would the resistance. The reason for my prediction is: The flow of electrons is called a current, the electrons are constantly hitting atoms, which causes resistance. If the same amount of current is passed through a longer piece of wire, there will be more collisions, hence more resistance. The more resistance there

    Length of the Wire Affects the Resistance of the Current Passing Through Wire Aim For this experiment, my aim is to investigate how the length of the wire affects the resistance of the current passing through the wire. Hypothesis and Scientific Knowledge When electric current passes through a conductor, there is always a resistance against it. The resistance varies between different types of materials. Although all metals are conductors, some have a higher resistance than the other.

    Factors that Affect the Resistance of Resistance Putty This investigation is designed to look into the resistance of different materials, in this case, resistance putty in the form of wires, and their conducting capability in different shapes. We must bear in mind though that different thickness and length of the putty used to make up the wire itself will affect the electric conduction capability. Therefore, the factors are;  The thickness of the putty e.g. 1mm, 2mm, 3mm in diameter or 1
