Dear student

Astemperaturerises, the number of phonons increases and with it the likelihood that the electrons and phononswillcollide. Thus whentemperaturegoes up, resistance goes up. For some materials,resistivity isa linear function oftemperature. ... Theresistivityof a conductor increases withtemperature.
