A wre 20 meters long and 0.6 centimeters in diameter made from a certain alloy has a resistance of 36 ohms. what is the resistance of a pice of wire 60 meters long and 1.2 centimeters in diameter made from the same material? R = KL/D^2....WHERE K IS A CONSTANT 36=K*20/0.6^2 K=36*0.36/20 R=K*60/1.2^2=[36*0.36/20][60/1.44]=[36*0.36*60/(20*1.44)]=27 OHMS
