Resistance Between Electrodes

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.
