(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Calculate the resistance per meter at room temperature of a constant wire if diameter [tex]1.25mm[/tex]. The resistivity of constant a at room temperature is [tex]5x10^-7\Omega{m}[/tex]

2. Relevant equations

I'm not sure, but I think this is the right formula:

[tex]R = \frac{Pl}{A}[/tex]

3. The attempt at a solution

[tex]Area = \pi \times \left(\frac{1.25 \times 10^{-3}}{2}\right)^2[/tex]

[tex]A = 1.2 \times 10^{-6} m^2[/tex]

What is Pl?
