How will the resistance of a wire change if you cut it in half?

Data: lk (final wire length) = 1/2 ln (initial wire length); ρ (electrical resistivity) = const; S (wire section) = const.

The change in the resistance of the specified wire after cutting is determined from the ratio: k = Rc / Rn = (ρ * lc / S) / (ρ * ln / S) = lc / ln = 1/2 ln / ln = 1/2.

Answer: After cutting, the resistance of the specified wire will decrease by 2 times.
