hi everybody(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Question:

a length of uniform wire has a R of 2 ohms. calculate the R of a wire of the same metal and original length but twice the diameter.

I thought as the wire gets twice as thick the R must halve to 1ohms. But the solution is 0.5 ohms.

what did i do wrong?

thanks in advance
