we need to find out how to predict the resistance change when the temperature changes.We thought than we are going to heat a wire up and cool one down with ice and measure the change in Voltage and calculate than the resistance with ohm's law. Our project includes than we schould be able to predict this change. We thougt than we can calculate the thermal energy of the wire add that to the electric energy from the series in normal condition and than solve the equation P=IxIxR for R. Our problem is to calculate the thermal energy of the wire. Thanks
