    A bird lands on a bare copper wire carrying a current of 32 A. The wire is 8 gauge, which means that its cross-sectional area is 0.13 cm^2. (a) Find the difference in potential between the bird's feet, assuming they are separated by a distance of 6.0 cm. (b) Will your answer to part (a) increase or decrease if the separation between the bird's feet increases? Explain
