The resistance of a metal increases with increase of temperature. This is becuase the positive ions in the conductor vibrate more when its temperature is increased. The charge carriers (conduction electrons) therefore cannot pass through the metal as easily when a pd is applied across the conductor. A metal is said to hace a
