c. stays the same
d. changes, but may increase or decrease

b. The drift speed of the mobile charge carriers
c. The charge on the mobile charge carriers
d. All of the above
Which of the following would have an effect on the resistance of a conducting wire?
a. The emf of the battery to which the resistor is connected
b. The current passing the through the conductor
c. The manner in which it is connected to other resistors
d. The material from which the wire is made.
