How does heating of nichrome wire work? Answered
I was thinking about a situation, but right now I've hit a dead end;
Ok, picture this:
There's a room with a length of nichrome wire which connects to a power supply.
(The power supply is constant voltage, and the length of nichrome wire will be constant throughout these scenarios)
If the room is at room temperature, and power is applied to the wire, it heats up to x degrees after 1 minute.
Here's what I wanted to know:
If the room was below room temperature, and power was applied, would it still heat up to x degrees after 1 minute?
If the room was at x degrees, what temperature would the wire get to (i.e, would it be higher or lower than the very first scenario) when power is supplied, after 1 minute?
Thanks in advance
