Hey there! This question has be a bit confused as to where to start---(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Suppose you made a 4.70 k-Ohm resistor from a carbon resistor and a Nichrome wire wound resistor connected together so the total resistance is the sum of their seperate resistances. What value should each of these resistors have (at 0 degrees Celsius) so the combination is temperature independent?

My question is how can we make it temperature independent? I am having trouble in general---- understanding what that means...

Any help would be greatly appreciated thank you.

A lot of the ideas in this chapter play a big role in materials science so im quite interested in this part of the course--- more so than mechanics :]
