 Question 46551: the electrical resistance R of a wire varies directly as its length L and inversely as the square of its diameter. A wire 20 meters long and 0.6 centimeters in diameter made from a certain alloy has a resistance of 36ohms. What is the resistance of a piece of wire 60 meters long and 1.2 centimenters in diameter made from the same material? i know that the equation should look something like this: R=k L/D^2 but from there i get lost when plugging in the values 36ohms=k (20m)/(.6cm)^2 if i can figure out K i can plug in the other values and get my answer. i figure i have to make m into cm so 20 becomes 2000cm/.36cm if i times by 100 to get rid of the decimal in denominator i get 3600oms=K* 200000/36 multiply both sides by 36 and i get 129600oms=200000K divide by 200000 k=.648 pluggin in the values that i have from above i get the resistance would be 27ohms.
