As discussed in

Ohm's Law -

Current flowing through the conductor is directly proportional to the Potential difference accross two ends .

- wherein

unit -   \frac{m^{2}}{volt\cdot sec}

 

V \alpha  I

V=IR

R- Electric Resistance

 

 

\dpi{100} R=\frac{V}{I}

\therefore \; \; \frac{\Delta R}{R}=\frac{\Delta V}{V}+\frac{\Delta I}{I}

Percentage error in R is

\frac{\Delta R}{R}\times 100=\frac{\Delta V}{V}\times 100+\frac{\Delta I}{I}\times 100

=3\%+3\%=6\%  

 


Option 1)

6%

This option is correct.

Option 2)

zero

This option is incorrect.

Option 3)

1%

This option is incorrect.

Option 4)

3%

This option is incorrect.
