Question

Consider a copper bar with dimensions 15 cm x 19 cm x 90 cm ( A x B x C ). If you are to attach wire leads to this copper bar to make a resistor, to which opposite faces ( A, B, or C ) should you connect the leads in order to:

A) Achieve the largest possible resistance.

B) Achieve the smallest possible resistance.

Answer #1

Consider a sample of pure copper with dimensions of 1 cm x 1 cm
x 1 cm. The sample is cold worked and has a dislocation density of
1010/cm2 . After a recrytstallizing anneal, the dislocation density
is reduced to 104 /cm2 . If the average dislocation line energy is
5 eV/nm, calculate the energy change associated with this aspect of
the recrystallization process.
It was said there was not enough information to answer, but this

You are supplied with a battery that has an emf of 10V and a
piece of rubber with a resistivity of 8x10^13 m. The rubber has
dimensions of 2 cm x 3 cm x 9 cm.
A. If you wanted to use the piece of rubber as a resistor with
the lowest possible resistance which faces would you connect the
battery to? The 2x3 cm2 , 2x9 cm2 , or 3x9 cm2 sides? Why?
B. Calculate the resistance of the...

a) In most metals, there is roughly one conduction electron per
atom. Consider a copper wire (1 mm diameter) carrying a current of
10 A (these numbers are typical of home wiring) Compute the drift
velocity of electrons in this wire. (Is it surprising? Comment,
briefly.)
b) If I stretch a given piece of copper wire, making it 0.1%
longer, how much would this (roughly) change the resistance from
end to end? (What assumptions are you making?)
c) Suppose I...

Consider the reaction for the Haber Process: 3H2 (g)
+ N2 (g) <--> 2NH3(g)
A mixture of 1.0 mol each of N2, H2, and
NH3 are placed into a 1.0 L flask and allowed to come to
equilibrium at 500.0 C. Kp at this temperature is 1.45 x
10-5 atm-2.
A.) What is the value of Kc at this temperature? irst
find the relationship between Kc and Kp in
terms of RT. Then substitute T = 773K and R =...

Consider the following population: {7, 8, 8, 9, 9}. The value of
μ is 8.2, but suppose that this is not known to an
investigator. Three possible statistics for estimating μ
are
Statistic 1: the sample mean, x
Statistic 2: the sample median
Statistic 3: the average of the largest and the smallest values
in the sample
A random sample of size 3 will be selected without replacement.
Provided that we disregard the order in which the observations are
selected,...

1. Consider the general form of the utility for goods that are
perfect complements.
a) Why won’t our equations for finding an interior solution to the
consumer’s problem work for this kind of utility? Draw(but do not
submit) a picture and explain why (4, 16) is the utility maximizing
point if the utility is U(x, y) = min(2x, y/2), the income is $52,
the price of x is $5 and the price of y is $2. From this picture
and...

1) 2 point charges are separated by a distance of 8 cm. The left
charge is 48 mC and the right charge is -16mC. Using a full sheet
of paper: draw the 2 charges separated by 8cm, centered in the
sheet. (if you are missing a ruler estimate 8cm as ⅓ a paper sheet
length). [6] a) Draw field lines to indicate the electric fields
for this distribution. [4] b) Draw 3 equipotential surfaces, 1
each, that pass: -Through the...

Part 1: Two Round Conductors Gather all items required for the
exercise. Note: If using the lab kit box, remove contents and place
in a secure area. Put on your safety goggles. Center the black
conductive paper on the top of the box, grid-side up. Place the two
metal nuts (conductors) at the (5 cm, 10 cm) and (20 cm, 10 cm)
positions on the paper. Secure using two dissection pins for each
conductor. See Figure 13. Note: Place the...
