Given,

Current (I) = 770mn = 770 x 10⁻³A

Voltage (v) = 18mv = 18 x 10⁻³volts

Resistance (R) = ?

Diameter of wire (D) = 1.8 x 10⁻³m

Length of wire (L) = 5.60m

We know that:-

Voltage (v) = current (I) x resistance (R)

Resistance (R) = voltage (v) / current (I) = 18 x 10⁻³ / 770 x 10⁻³

= 0.023Ω

∴ Resistance (R) = 0.023Ω.

resistance = potential / current

R = 18.0mV / 770mA = 0.0234 Ω
