The Resistance of a Conducting Wire Calculator will calculate the:

- Resistance of a conducting wire when the length, type of material and cross-sectional area of the material are given material

**Calculation Parameters:** Medium is considered as uniform; the wire is considered at the same thickness everywhere.

The Resistance of material is Ω[Ohm] |

Resistance of material calculation |

R_{w} = ρ × L/AR _{w} = × /R _{w} = /R _{w} = |

Resistance Of A Conducting Wire Calculator Input Values |

Resistivity of material (ρ) Ω ∙ m [Ohm times metre] |

Length of wire (L) m [metre] |

Cross sectional area of wire (A) m^{2} [square metre] |

Please note that the formula for each calculation along with detailed calculations are available below. As you enter the specific factors of each resistance of a conducting wire calculation, the Resistance Of A Conducting Wire Calculator will automatically calculate the results and update the Physics formula elements with each element of the resistance of a conducting wire calculation. You can then email or print this resistance of a conducting wire calculation as required for later use.
