Resistivity of NiCu

  1. I am very sorry because this post seems spammy, but I cannot, for the life of me, find the resistivity of NiCu alloy.
    My lab has it as 35*10^8 Ω*m, and when i compare my calculated value of resistance to the theoretical it is off by a factor of 10. This causes me to think that there is a typo and it should be 3.5*10^8…
    Could someone please confirm this?
    I cannot find it by googling (and I've been trying for the past hour or so).

  3. It will depend on the composition of the alloy.
    But it seems that the 35x10^8 is the right order of magnitude, according to the values given by Wiki.
  4. Both of you actually mean 35 * 10-8 Ωm (note the sign), don't you?
  5. Yes, you are right. At least I meant negative 8.:)
