## Resistance of a sphere

## Resistance of a sphere

(OP)

This is not a very practical question, but one I have thought about quite a bit. Just curious. If I took a copper sphere and measured the resistance across the sphere, I would get some value of resistance. If I tripled the size of the sphere, how would the resistance change?

## RE: Resistance of a sphere

I don't know how to prove it, but I believe the resistance would be constant.
