The T.W.I.N.K.I.E.S. Resistivity Test (0 words)
To test the resistivity of a Twinkie, a 110V standard AC household current was run across it.
After verifying that power was being supplied to the Twinkie, we concluded that the resistivity of the Twinkie must be so high that not enough current was passing through to cause any noticeable change.
A quick measurement with a Digital Multimeter (DMM) confirmed that the resistivity was beyond the DMM's range.
Resistance (912 words)
The resistance to the flow of charge in an electric circuit is analogous to the frictional effects between water and the pipe surfaces as well as the resistance offered by obstacles which are present in its path.
A third variable which is known to effect the resistance to charge flow is the material that a wire is made of.
Consistent with the discussion above, this equation shows that the resistance of a wire is directly proportional to the length of the wire and inversely proportional to the cross-sectional area of the wire.
