Extra Question A cylindrical conductor of length l and uniform area of cross section A has resistance R. Another conductor of length 2l and resistance R of the same material has area of cross section (a) A/2 (b) 3A/2 (c) 2 A (d) 3 AGiven
Length of the conductor = l
Area of cross-section = A
Resistance of the conductor = R
Let the resistivity of the conductor = 𝜌
We know that,
R = 𝜌 𝑙/𝐴
∴ A = 𝜌𝑙/𝑅
New Conductor
Given,
Length of other conductor = l2 = 2l
Resistance of the conductor = R
Since the material is same,
Resistivity of the conductor = 𝜌
Now,
R = 𝜌 𝑙_2/𝐴_2
R = 𝜌 (2l) × 1/𝐴_2
A2 = (𝜌 (2𝑙))/𝑅
A2 = 2((𝜌 𝑙)/𝑅)
A2 = 2 A
∴ (c) is correct
