i need to investigate nichrome wire and a globe and i need to state which is an ohmic conductor. what will my method be??

• physics -

Measure applied voltage and current for each conductor. Do it for a range of applied voltages. If the voyage/current ratio remains constant, you have an ohmic conductor.
