Post subject: Copper wire resistance
Thu Dec 23, 2004 11:10 am
We are working on a new electronic
sensor device which requires the
periodic measurement of a 28AWG
kynar insulated copper wire loop
(ten feet long) under varying ambient
Since the electrical resisitivity of copper increases
linearly with the
ambient temperature, we know the following facts
wire at a temperature of 20C:
Our problem is that we need to know
the electrical resisitivity of copper
wire at each degree reading
between -20C and +70C ( in addition to
the electrical resisitivity
we know that copper has at 20C).
If anyone has a suggestion or
reference for further information, please
advise as soon as possible.
Thanks in advance for your help in this matter.
