FACTORS AFFECTING RESISTANCE Research Question- How does the length of a wire affect resistance to the flow of the electric current? Through the course of this experiment I will be investigating how the length of a wire affects resistance. Justification- Interaction of the charge helps us to predict electric field patterns. Resistance is a basically a force, that is responsible held responsible for opposing the flow of an electric current. Resistance is measured in Ohms.
In electronic circuits, resistors are required to adjust signal levels, reduce current flow, divide voltages and terminate the transition line models. There are several factors affecting resistance and through my experiment I aim to find out how the length of a wire (a conductor) affects the resistance of the flow of charge. In order to calculate the resistance I will divide the voltage (V ) by the electric current (I) which will give me the opposition to the flow of electric current in ohms (W). V = W — I
