Write the given values with suitable variables.
a = 2 × 10 3 / C R 0 = 30   Ω T 0 = 20   C R = 33   Ω
Here, α , R 0 , T 0 , and R are the coefficient of resistivity, initial resistance, initial temperature, and final resistance.
The final resistance of the material can be expressed as
R = R 0 ( 1 + α ( T T 0 ) ) ( 33 Ω ) = ( 30 Ω ) ( 1 + ( 2 × 10 3 / C ) ( T 20 C ) ) T = 70 C

Ohm's law is represented by the equation I = V R . How would the current change if the amount of resistance decreased and the voltage stayed the same?

The formula for resistivity is:
ρ = R A L
where ρ is resistivity, R is resistance, A is cross-sectional area, and L is the length of the conductor.
We can see from the formula that A and L are involved, why then does resistivity not depend on dimensions?

A submarine of mass m is travelling at max power and has engines that deliver a force F at max power to the submarine. The water exerts a resistance force proportional to the square of the submarine's speed v.
The submarine increases its speed from v 1 to v 2 , show that the distance travelled in this period is m 2 k ln F k v 1 2 F k v 2 2 where k is a constant.
I've found d v d t = 1 m ( F k v 2 ) using F = m a but I am struggling to progress further using integration or the fact that d v d t = v d v d x = d d x ( 1 2 v 2 ) = d 2 x d t 2 which is how I've been taught to solve resisted motion questions.

Say we got an alloy made of 90% Au and 10%Cu. The atomic mass of gold is
A A u = 197 g / m o l e
and of copper
A C u = 63.5 g / m o l e
The specific resistivity of gold is
ρ = 22.8 n Ω m
and the Nordheim coefficient is
C = 450 n Ω m
Then by the Nordheim rule we have that the resistivity of this alloy is given as
ρ = ρ A u + C X ( 1 X )
where X=0.1, and represents the percentage of Copper in the alloy. Using the above I got that
ρ = 63.3 n Ω m
, but data shows that the actual resistivity is ρ = 108 n Ω m. What about X? Is it the percentage of atoms in the alloy, or is it the percentage of mass in the alloy?

V P V O = P O E . d r
The equation is in one dimension and P and O are points on the x axis.
The Electric field is oriented in the + x direction ans has the formula c 1 r where c is a coefficient and r is the distance form the origin of the coordinate system.
The vector r P r O has the same direction as that of the electric field.
Now, Why do we put P below the integral and O above it? Can someone explain the equation for me?
