Resistance in Circuits

HideShow resource information
Resistance is opposition to...
the flow od=f charge in a circuit
1 of 5
The greater the resistance...
the smaler the current for a given p.d.
2 of 5
All components have resistance measured in...
ohms (Ω)
3 of 5
Resistance increases with...
temperature
4 of 5
This is due to some of the elctrical energy being turned into heat energy and this causes...
ions in the conductor to vibrate more, making it harder for the current to flow
