NEET Physics Current Electricity Questions Solved

Following figure shows cross-sections through three long conductors of the same length and material, with square cross-section of edge lengths as shown. Conductor B will fit snugly within conductor A, and conductor C will fit snugly within conductor B. Relationship between their end to end resistance is

(1) RA = RB = RC

(2) RA > RB > RC

(3) RA < RB < R

(4) Information is not sufficient

(1) All the conductors have equal lengths. Area of cross-section of A is {(3a)2(2a)2}=a2

Similarly area of cross-section of B = Area of cross-section of C = a2

Hence according to formula R=ρlA; resistances of all the conductors are equal i.e. RA = RB = R
