How does sheet resistance change when comparing a flat sheet to a folded sheet?



Is this change predictable? Would the change also depend on the number of folds? Is the capacitance of the fold an important factor in the change?

Welcome to PF;
If there is an electrical connection on the inside of the fold, then you have just shifted to a different geometry slab - different A and/or d.

I think anything else will depend a lot on the material properties of the sheet.
