thunderstorm

length of wire 2.5m, cross sectional area 2.0mm squared, current of 3.0a flowing through driven by p.d. of 4.5V. the first part of the question had me work out the resistance of the wire which i got as 1.5ohms.

i understand the equation for resistivity is

r= pl/a where p is the resistivity, l is length, a is area of wire and r is resistance?

so do i rearrange this equation to work it out? sorry for sounding stupid, i get confused easily and i'm not very good at rearranging equations, any tips? thanks
