# Resistance of a god damn wire!!! watch

1. Im doing an experiment on how the length of a piece of wire affects the resitance. I know that the longer the length themore resistance becuase the electrons have further to travel causing more collisions when they are trying to complete te circuit. Im on my conclusion, and i need a much more detailed explanation for al this rubbish!!! Geez, i hate all this work!

What have you done so far?

talk about the thickness of the wire, the material of the wire etc etc

Err i just realised how crap my spellin was. Soz. Erm ive basically wrote about the patterns on my graph n how the resistance is proportional to the length. I need a detailed explanation why it is tho.

i didnt experiment with ether of those. i basically need to write a detailed conlusion on why te length of a wire affeced the resistance. i need to go into more detail than 'the electrons have to travel fuher causing mor colisions between them and the atoms'
6. what help do you need, thats one of the easiest pieces of gcse science courseworks i had to do. i got 26/30; level 7.7.7.5.

For some reason 'Being Ugly' and 'God' are included in that list?! Maybe there's some off topic talk in them (?).

ANALYSING EVIDENCE
Explain simply what was shown by the evidence
Use simple graphs / charts / diagrams to help explain evidence Identify trends or patterns in the evidence
Use graphs (line of best fit) charts, diagrams or numerical methods to process evidence for conclusion
Draw conclusions from evidence and explain using scientific knowledge and understanding
Use detailed scientific knowledge and understanding to explain valid conclusions from processed evidence
Explain how conclusion supports or undermines original prediction

EVALUATING EVIDENCE
Relevant comment about procedure or evidence obtained
Comment on quality of evidence and IDENTIFY unexpected / abnormal results (anomalies)
Comment on suitability of procedure and suggest improvements
Comment on reliability of results and whether the evidence is enough to support a firm conclusion. Account for anomalies
Describe, in detail, further work to provide additional (extra) relevant evidence
9. if you can i need a detailed conclusion on the resistance of a wire. i only got four days to hand in my coursework and you said it was easy. i just need a conclusion
10. The resistance of a wire is directly proportional to the length, but inversely proportional to the cross sectional area of the wire.
11. Do you learn R = ρl/A at GCSE (where ρ = resistivity, l = length, A = cross sectional area)?
