CLASS - XII PHYSICS (Unit – Current Electricity)
1. If a wire is stretched to double of its length. What will be its new resistivity? 
2. Name any one material having a small value of temperature coefficient of
resistance. Write one use of this material?

3. Figure shows a piece of pure semiconductor S in series with a variable resistor
Rand a source of constant voltage V. Would you increase and decrease the value
of R to keep the reading of ammeter (A) constant, when semiconductor S is
heated ? Give reasons.

4. The variation of resistance of a metallic conductor with temperature is given in
figure.
(a) Calculate the temperature coefficient of resistance from the graph.
(b) State why the resistance of the conductor increases with the rise in
temperature.
