Ok, the coursework i have been give is on the Resistivity of conducting putty. I know that Resistivity is the relationship between resistance, length and cross sectional area.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

But what do i do?

Do i just get different lengths and thicknesses of a metal and find the resistance. Then work out the resistivity?

Help i'm confused.
