## Homework Statement

A toaster with a Nichrome heating element has a resistance of 150 omega at 20degrees Celsius and an initial current of 2 A. When the heating element reaches its final temperature, the current is 1.73 A. What is the final temperature of the heating element?

## Homework Equations

Not sure if they will help but...

(for the equations below i will use

*p*as rho)

R = (

*p*) (L/A)

temperature coefficient of resistivity, alpha = ((

*p - p*/ (T - T

_{0})/p_{0})_{0})

## The Attempt at a Solution

The only equation relating to the temperature of resistors was the temperature coefficient but I'm not sure how to use it. Thanks for the help!
