A thick wire has smaller resistance while a thin wire has larger resistance. True or False

Brisa Fitzgerald

Step 1
According to the formula $R=p\frac{I}{{a}^{\prime }}$, resistance of a conductor is directly proportional to length 'l' of the conductor and inversely proportional to the area 'a' of the conductor.
Step 2
The thick wire has a larger surface area, so it has less resistance and is a better conductor of electricity than the thin wire, which has a higher resistance.
Hence, True
