L is varied by moving the crocodile clips along the wire.

Am I right in thinking that the current flowing will remain the same irrespective of the length?

My reasoning:

rho=AR/L

R=V/I

sub and rearrange to give:

I=AV/L(rho)

As L increases, V increases by the same proportion. A and rho remain constant. Thus, I is constant.

Thanks
