**Physics: Diameter of a nichrome wire**

If 49 m of nichrome wire is to have a resistance of 13.0 ohms at 20°C, what diameter wire should be used? I've done this: (108e-8)(49)/10.0 ohms = 5.29e-6m^2 Then 5.29e-6m^2/pi then r = sqrt(1.68e-6m^2) and got .00129 = 1.29e-3 1.29mm r=2(1.29mm) = 2.58mm But this is wrong. ...
