How Temperature Changes Resistance. Although the resistance of a conductor changes with the size of the conductor (e.g. thicker wires have less resistance to current flow than thinner wires) the resistance of a conductor also changes with changing temperature.

Apr 12 2013 · The Rule requires that R-value tests be conducted at a mean temperature of 75°F (23.9°C) and a temperature differential of 50°F (27.8°C). This means that insulation is usually tested with the cold side at 50°F (10°C) and the warm side at 100°F (37.8°C). 3. The R-value Rule only applies to insulation products that are marketed and sold
