  5. 5. When a strain gauge is bonded to an object, and theWhen a strain gauge is bonded to an object, and the object changes in size, the resistance of the strainobject changes in size, the resistance of the strain gauge will change. The resistance R is given by thegauge will change. The resistance R is given by the expression:expression: R=R= ρρ l/Al/A Where:Where:  l is the length of the wire in metersl is the length of the wire in meters  ρρ is the resistivity of the material in ohm metersis the resistivity of the material in ohm meters  A is the cross-sectional area of the filament in mA is the cross-sectional area of the filament in m22
