Change in resistance due to stretching a wire

“There is a wire whose resistance is R. it is streched, and its length gets increased to 2%. find new resistance.” – Knishka Agrawal asked

Answer: The resistivity does not change due to stretching, but the length and area of cross section changes; but the volume remains constant. Therefore, resistance changes which can be calculated from the formula for Resistance
