  • Factors Affecting the Resistance of a Wire

    890 Words  | 4 Pages

    Factors Affecting the Resistance of a Wire The aim of this experiment is to investigate one factor that affect the resistance of a wire. I will do this by performing an experiment. First I will need to identify the factors that effect resistance. There are a few factors that affect the resistance, it is determined by the properties an object has. This is know as resistivity. The factors I can investigate are : Ÿ Temperature Ÿ Length Ÿ Cross-sectional area/width Ÿ Material

  • An Investigation into Factors Affecting Resistance of a Wire

    1232 Words  | 5 Pages

    An Investigation into Factors Affecting Resistance of a Wire Plan: The possible variables I could use to find out factors affecting resistance are material wire is made of, length of wire, temperature and cross sectional area of wire. I will use cross sectional area of wire and length of wire because I think it will be hard to draw conclusions from the material of wire. I am not doing temperature because it would be hard to get results from and I think they wouldn't be as accurate.

  • Investigating Factors Affecting Resistance of a Wire

    558 Words  | 3 Pages

    Investigating Factors Affecting Resistance of a Wire Aim --- Investigate what factors affect the resistance of wire, however in this experiment I am going to monitor how the length of a wire affects the resistance of a wire if the current is kept the same. Method ------ 1) Arrange apparatus as shown in the Diagram: 2) Cut a length of wire over a meter long and sellotape to a meter ruler. 3) Attach one positive crocodile clip to 0cm, and move the negative up/down, stopping

  • Factors Affecting the Resistance of a Metal Wire

    1474 Words  | 6 Pages

    Factors Affecting the Resistance of a Metal Wire 1. Investigate some of the factors that affect the resistance of a metal wire. The current and voltage will be measured and then V = IR will be used to calculate the resistance. The potential divider circuit produced better results in the investigation into how resistance depends on the number of identical resistors connected in series, so this circuit will be used for this investigation, too. Variables and Constants 2. Possible

  • Diabetes Essay

    909 Words  | 4 Pages

    INTRODUCTION Diabetes is a chronic disorder that affects a large segment of the population and is a most significant public health problem. Diabetes is a metabolic disorder affecting the Langher islets of pancreas affecting the insulin and glucoagan production and consecutively affecting the sugar (glucose) metabolism which in turn affecting the overall metabolism the disease may be classified into type I diabetes mellitus and type II diabetes mellitus. Type I diabetic mellitus is previously known as insulin-

    Content Page 1. Introduction of Strain Gauges 2. How Strain Gauge works 3. Gauge Factor 4. Applications of Strain Gauges 5. How strain gauges attached to objects 6. Factors affecting accuracy of strain gauges • Lead-wire effects • Thermal Effects  Introduction to Strain Gauges A strain gauge is a long length of conductor arranged in a zigzag pattern on a membrane. A strain gage’s electrical resistance varies in proportion to the amount of strain in the device, therefore measuring the strain

  • Investigating the Factors Affecting the Time Peiod of a Pendulum

    1434 Words  | 6 Pages

    Investigating the Factors Affecting the Time Peiod of a Pendulum Aim: To investigate the factors affecting the time period of a pendulum Introduction: [IMAGE]The time period of a pendulum is the amount of time that a pendulum takes to swing from position A, through positions B and C and back to A again. It is the movement from 1 peak to another, i.e. one oscillation. I need to examine the factors affecting how long it takes for 1 oscillation to take place, In relation to the energy

  • Importance Of Sewing Thread

    1072 Words  | 5 Pages

    threads is a unique type of yarn, engineered and constructed to pass through a sewing machine swiftly. The fundamental function of a sewing thread is to produce aesthetic and performance in stitches and seams (Coats 2003; Shaeffer 2000). 5.1.1 Factors affecting aesthetics of sewing thread Fineness/thickness, colour and lustre must be taken into account when selecting a sewing thread for decorative purposes such as embroidery. Other considerations include: • Hue and shade matching

  • Resistance Welding Essay

    1143 Words  | 5 Pages

    Essay: Resistance welding Resistance welding is a method to join two metals that involves the application of force or pressure as well as electricity at a spot where the two metals touch. It is also known as resistance spot welding or resistance seam welding. The electricity creates resistance heat at the point where the two metals touch, creating a joint or bond through melting of the metals. The melting of dissimilar metals creates an alloy that is referred to as a weld nugget. Joule heating
