Computing the Resistance of a Wire

Application ID: 12697

Every electrical device has some resistance. That is, when a voltage difference is applied across any two terminals of the device, there will be a directly proportional current flow. This model demonstrates how to compute the resistance of a short section of copper wire. The convergence of the solution with respect to the mesh size is also studied.

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
