### Is Nichrome low resistivity?

Nichrome, a non-magnetic alloy of nickel and chromium has a high resistivity and resistance to oxidation at a high temperature. It is the most commonly used resistance wire for heating purposes.

### What is resistivity of nichrome vary with temperature?

1 Answer. At low temperature (or zero), the resistivity increases as a higher power of temperature. Then, it linearly increases with increase in temperature.

**Why the resistivity of nichrome is high?**

Even at 0 K temperature the specific resistivity of Nichrome is very high and it varies linearly with increase in temperature. It has a high specific resistivity due to which it opposes the flow of current and hence it has a high resistance too. It is also very ductile so it can easily be drawn into thin wires.

#### How do you find the resistivity of nichrome wire?

Answer and Explanation: Given: ρ=1.5 × 10−6 Ωm ρ = 1.5 × 10 − 6 Ω m is the resistivity of nichrome.

**What is the resistivity of nichrome at 20 degrees Celsius?**

The resistance of a nichrome wire at 20 oC is 10 Ω .

## What is the value of resistivity?

The unit of resistivity in the metre-kilogram-second system is ohm-metre. If distances are measured in centimetres, resistivity can be expressed in ohm-centimetre. At 200C (680 F), the resistivity of a very strong electrical conductor like hard-drawn copper is 1.77 x 10-8 ohm-metre or 1.77 x 10-6 ohm-centimetre.

## What is SI unit of resistivity?

Q. SI unit of resistivity is ohm.

**How do you calculate the resistivity of Nichrome wire?**

Measured length of nichrome wire = 0.951 m. Resistance of wire = 29.3 – 0.02 = 29.1 Ω. The resistivity of nichrome is 1.06×10−6 Ω . Ensure the wire is completely straight with no kinks or curves.

### How does resistivity of nichrome varies with temperature?

### How do we calculate the resistivity?

Step 1: Identify the resistivity (ρ) , length (L), and radius (r) of the wire. Step 2: Calculate the cross-sectional area of the wire using the formula for the area of a circle: A=πr2 A = π r 2 . Step 3: Calculate the resistance (R) of the wire using the formula for resistance: R=ρLA R = ρ L A .

**How does resistivity of nichrome vary with temperature?**

#### What is the resistivity of nichrome?
