The resistance of a coil copper wire at 20 degree celsius is 2.21 ohms. After a current of 10 amperes has been flowing in wire for two hours, the resistance of the coil was found o be 2.59 ohms. What is the temperature rise?

  1. The Temperature Coefficient of Copper (near
    room temperature) is +0.393 % per o
    C. This
    means if the temperature increases 1o
    C the
    resistance will increase 0.393%.

    does that help?
