1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data The resistivity of nichrome wire is 1.1micro ohm meters. What length of wire of diameter 0.079 mm is required to provide resistance of 1.0 Kohm? 2. Relevant equations R=resistivity x length/area 3. The attempt at a solution 1000ohms = ? x 0.0011/0.079 79 = ? x 0.0011 71818.18 = resistivity I know I've stuffed up real bad, but this one is troubling me crazy.
