True Or False: Most Conducting Materials Have Different Resistances At Different Temperatures.

Most conducting materials have different resistances at different temperatures. True or False?

Answer: True.

Explanation

Temperature is one of the factors that determine resistance in a conductor. The hotter the conductor, the more resistance. The colder the conductor is,  the less resistance it will have.

Common conducting materials are metals like copper and iron. Increasing the temperature of metal increases the flow of electrons within it. It causes resistance of the conduction band to be increased.
