You build a wire by combining an 8 inches copper wire with a 10 inches nichrome wire. If their combine resistance is 10 kΩ, find the cross section area of both wires. The nichrome wire has twice the area of the copper wire.

- Relevant Equations
- I = V/R

R=\rho \times \frac{l}{A}

R is the resistance in ohms (Ω).

ρ is the resistivity in ohms-meter (Ω×m)

l is the length of the conductor in meter (m)

A is the cross sectional area of the conductor in square meters (m2)

R2 = R1 × ( 1 + α(T2 - T1) )

R2 is the resistance at temperature T2 in ohms (Ω).

R1 is the resistance at temperature T1 in ohms (Ω).

α is the temperature coefficient.
