Q. 24.8( 4 Votes )

Two resistors A a A. ρA > ρB

B. ρA = ρB

C. ρA < ρB

D. The information is not sufficient to find the relation between ρA and ρB.

Answer :

Given :

Resistance of resistor A, RA< Resistance of resistor B, RB

Formula used : Resistance is given by the formula


R is the resistance

ρ is the resistivity

l is the length

A is the area of cross section

Resistance is

Resistance is

Only the relation between resistance values of and is given. R is depends on ρ, l and With the information given we cannot conclude the relation between resistivity of the two resistors.

If information about ρ, l and A is given then we can say the relation between ρA and ρB. So option D is correct.
