Ok so we got an aluminum rod that has a resistance of 1.234 ohms at 20 degrees Celsius. I need to calculate the resistance of the rod at 120 degrees by accounting for hte changes in both the resistivity and the dimensions of the rod.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I calculated the resistance would be 1.238 ohms.

Can someone verify this for me?
