Two conducting wires A and B (made of same material) of length 1 m and 2 m and area of cross sections 1 cm^2 and 100mm^2, respectively are taken. if the resistance of a wire of length 5 m and thickness 2 cm made of same material as A and B is 5 ohms, then find the resistance of the new wire of length 5m formed by melting A and B.

just use the formula R=\rho L/A
and conserve volume
5\Omega=\rho *5*100/(pi* 1*1)          converted m into cm
\rho=pi/100
now total volume of a & b =V=100.02 * pi
area of new wire=V/ length of new wire
     A=100.02*pi/500
R=\rhoL/A
=(pi/100)(500)/((100.02*pi)/(500))
solve it and that’s the answer!
