A cylindrical copper rod has resistance R. If it is cut to half of its original lenth, its new resistance is:

resistance is given by

is resistivity which is a property of material

A is cross section area

L is length

We can see that is length(L) is made half i.e L/2

Resistance also becomes half i.e R/2
