Homework Statement



17. How long should a copper wire 20 mills in diameter be for it to have a resistance of 5.0Ω?

20. An electric motor draw 10 A from a 240-V source 120 ft away. What is the minimum diameter of the copper wire in mills if the voltage drop is not to exceed 2%?

22. A copper wire 1.0 mm in diameter carries a current of 12 A. Find the potential difference between two points in the wire that are 100m apart.

24. The resistance of a copper wire is 100 Ω @ 20oC. Find its resistance at 0oC and at 80oC

25. An iron wire has a resistance of 2.00 Ω at 0oC and a resistance of 2.46 Ω at 45oC. Find the temperature coefficient of resistivity of the wire
