(i) Consider a conductor of resistance ?R?, length ?L?, thickness?d? and resistivity ???. Now this conductor is cut into four equal parts. What will be the new resistivity of each of these parts? Why? (ii) Find the resistance if all of these parts are connected in: (a) Parallel (b) Series (iii) Out of the combinations of resistors mentioned above in the previous part, for a given voltage which combination will consume more power and why?
