Question description

The resistance R of an electrical

conductor at temperature θ

◦C is given by

R= R0 eαθ, where α is a constant and

R0 =5×103 ohms. Determine the value of α,

correct to 4 significant figures, when

R=6×103 ohms and θ =1500◦C. Also, find the

temperature, correct to the nearest degree, when the

resistance R is 5.4×103 ohms.
