## Homework Statement

(a) Assuming a resistivity of 1E13 (horseshoe thing)m, calculate the resistance between the ends of a rubber band that is 19 cm long and 2.2 mm in diameter.

(b) Calculate the resistance between the 'heads' and 'tails' sides of a penny that is 1 mm thick and 2 cm in diameter.

(c) WARNING! Do not try this at home! What is the expected current that each would carry if it were connected across a 108-V power supply?

rubber band (A)

penny (A)

## Homework Equations

R=pL/a

## The Attempt at a Solution

So I thought for the first one that I would use R =pL/A but I think you have to change some of the numbers and I'm not sure how.
