Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Lily on Monday, March 8, 2010 at 3:33am.

A rectangular piece of gold is 3.1 cm long and 3 cm wide. Resistivity of gold is 2.4*10^-8. How deep is the piece when it displays a resistance of R = 1.65 μω for a current that flows along the depth-direction?

I used R=(p*l)/A and solved for l. I got the answer wrong. For the area I used 0.03*0.03 as the cross sectional area. What did I do wrong?
