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 is included as an example in the following products:
