The article offers information about conductor resistance and also offers suggestions on how to minimize conductor resistance. It states that electrical elements have conductor resistance with the help of which elements can oppose the passage of an electric current through the element. It also informs that conductor resistance decreases with decrease in temperature and large conductors have low resistivity.
