    A 1.70 m cylindrical rod of diameter 0.450 cm is connected to a power supply that maintains a constant potential difference of 15.0 V across its ends, while an ammeter measures the current through it. You observe that at room temperature (20.0 degree Celsius ) the ammeter reads 18.7A , while at 92.0 degree Celsius it reads 17.2 A . You can ignore any thermal expansion of the rod.

    Find the resistivity for the material of the rod at 20 degree celsius.

    p= _______ ohms m.

    Find the temperature coefficient of resistivity at 20 deg. Celsius for the material of the rod.

    X = _______ deg C^-1.
