A resistance coil is a laboratory apparatus consisting of a coiled wire made of a material that has a high resistance to electrical current. Resistance coils are used to generate a specific amount of electrical resistance in a circuit, which can be used in experiments involving electrical resistance and Ohm’s Law.

The resistance of a resistance coil depends on the material it is made of, the length of the wire, and the cross-sectional area of the wire. Resistance coils are commonly made of materials such as nichrome, which has a high resistance to electrical current and are typically wound around a ceramic or metal core.

In laboratory settings, resistance coils are often used in experiments involving electricity, such as in circuit analysis and measuring electrical resistance. They can also be used in scientific research, such as in studies of the electrical properties of materials.
