If 3.25 × 10–3 kg of gold is deposited on the negative electrode of an electrolytic cell in a period of 2.78 h, what is the current through the cell in this period?

If the wire is to have a resistance of R = 0.500 Ω, and if all of the copper is to be used, what will be (a) the length and (b) the diameter of this wire? 17.12 The volume of the copper is m 1. 103 kg 00 V 1. 107 m 12 3 de iy 8. 103 kg m ns t 92 3 Since, V A L , this gives A L 1. 107 m 3 . 12 (1) L (a) From R , we find that A 1. 108 m A L R 70 0. 500 8 L 3. 10 m L . 40 Inserting this expression for A into Equation 1 gives 3. 10 40 8 m L2 1. 107 m 3 , which yields 12 82 L 1. m d2 1. 107 m 3 12 (b) From equation (1), A , or 4 L d 4 1. 107 m 12 3 41. 10 12 7 m 3 L 1. m 82 2. 104 m 0. m m 80 280 26. An aluminum rod has a resistance of 1.234 Ω at 20.0°C. Calculate the resistance of the rod at 120°C by accounting for the changes in both the resistivity and the dimensions of the rod. For aluminum, the coefficient of linear expansion is 24 106 C 1 17.26 and the temperature coefficient of resistivity is e 3. 10 9 3 C . At temperature T, 1 the length and cross-sectional area may be expressed as L L0 1 T T0 and A A 0 1 T T0 , respectively. 2 L L0 1 T T0 L0 1 e T T0 .

A certain toaster has a heating element made of Nichrome resistance wire. When the toaster is first connected to a 120-V source of potential difference (and the wire is at a temperature of 20.0°C) the initial current is 1.80 A. However, the current begins to decrease as the resistive element warms up. When the toaster has reached its final operating temperature, the current has dropped to 1.53 A. (a) Find the power the toaster converts when it is at its operating temperature. (b) What is the final temperature of the heating element? 17.38 (a) At the operating temperature, V I 120 V 1.
