hey all im just completing the writing up of my physics coursework on
resistance of constantan and nichrome wire. Nichrome has much less
resistance but i dont know why - can n e one help?

cheers ChRiS

Hello,where are you studying now?
Are you in Yr11? I just did this coursework few months ago.
In fact, Nichrome does NOT have a low resistance. Its resistance is fairly high.

Yeh, im in yr 11 - studying at ASHS in Norfolk. You were right! Trouble
is, 'more' and 'less' sound so damn similar when you've been working on
it all night. I found out the answer to my question any way, teacher jus
said dont bother with that much detail and gave us all a 2 week

hi,
Have you finished your coursework then? I had to do that coursework. It was a bore. but not as much as the one with the margarine tub. That was v.v. boring.
If you need any help with your resistance coursework, you only have to ask. I did exactly the same as you, but I started off with copper wire, which i based my experiment on and then i tried nichrome and then constantan so that I was 'positive that my prediction could be applied to all types of wire.' As I said, it was v. boring. If you have finished it, then YAY! Well done! Hopefully you don't have any more physic courseworks to do!

you guys r wqell lucky u only had to do it on 1 variable the type of wire i had to change the type of wire and length of wire than talk about how the length of the wire is directly proportional to its resistance u should think urselfs lucky

The coursework wasn't that bad was it? I did it as my first investigation and I found that it was simple to write up and explain, if you want send me a pm and i'll send you my work.
