Title Resistivity in a wire
Description This is an IGCSE physics test question from Nov. 2018 from the Cambridge International Education website. It is meant as a substitute for lab practice during on-line learning periods. It asks the student to set up a simple circuit, adjust some settings and then measure the potential difference for different lengths of wire. Students are also asked to graph their data and calculate the resistivity of the wire.
