## Homework Statement

The book says the formula is accurate as long as t and α are small. i understand about t but why also α?

## Homework Equations

Resistance R: ##R=R_0(1+\alpha t)##

## The Attempt at a Solution

According to the graph (see picture) α is the slope and is suited for every material, so only t makes a difference, because of the limited linear approximation
