    A square film of Nichrome, an alloy of nickel and chromium, has copper electrodes deposited on two opposite edges. Show that the resistance between the electrodes depends only on the thickness of the film on its conductivity, as long as the film is square. This surface resistance is expressed in ohms per square.

    A square film of Nichrome, an alloy of nickel and chromium, has copper electrodes deposited on two opposite edges. Show that the resistance between the electrodes depends only on the thickness of the film on its conductivity, as long as the film is square. This surface resistance is expressed in ohms per square.

    Answer: The surface resistivity of thin film could be defined as the materials inherent surface resistance to current flow multiplied by that ratio of ...
