Can anyone help me with this resistance problem?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Total Resistance in a series = R1+R2+...

Using this principle, estimate the resistance of a cylindrical aluminum block (resistivity = 2.65 x 10^-8 ohm-meter)that has a radius w/c lineary increases from 5cm to 10 cm.

Then divide block into 3 cylinders w/ equal thickness and uniform radius. State how you assumed the radii of the 3 cylinders.

If the 3 cylinders are cut to very thin disks, the resistance may be calculated w/ an integral. Set-up the integral.
