If 50ft of wire with a radius of 6 x 10^-3 inch has a resistance of 10ohms, what would be the resistance of 100ft of the same wire if the radius is increased to 7 x 10^13 inch?1 solutions Answer 367984 by lwsshak3(6527)   on 2012-02-11 02:51:48 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!he resistance (in ohms) of a circular conductor varies directly with the length of the conductor and inversely with the square of the radius of the conduction.
