I asked a question a few days ago. It got closed for needing to be “more focused.”
According to the site guidelines , in the Needs more focus part, it says:
This can often be fixed by breaking the question into multiple questions or focusing on a specific part of the problem.
I asked just one question, which is in bold in the post, and which I repeat: “Doesn’t that make metallic conductors not obey Ohm’s law (since the voltage is not directly proportional to current)? Or am I wrong (if so, how)?”
If your question has many valid answers (but no way to determine which - if any - are correct), then it probably needs to be more focused to be successful in our format.
I don’t think it has “many valid answers.” Either you can answer it with a “yes”, or a “no” and give reason(s).
Please edit the question to limit it to a specific problem with enough detail to identify an adequate answer. Avoid asking multiple distinct questions at once. See the How to Ask page for help clarifying this question.
My question is limited to a specific problem: on whether we can correctly say if Ohm’s law is satisfied in metallic conductors or not. I didn’t ask multiple questions. I wrote a bunch of details (to show I had done research and to share my understanding, but I received a “much ado about nothing” comment), and I explained why I thought Ohm’s law wasn’t valid. And it’s possible to identify an adequate answer: the one by Philip Wood not only answered a “yes” to my question in part (a) of his answer, but he further explained that there are two versions of Ohm’s law in macroscopic form which I hadn’t even considered, where in part (b) the answer to my question is “no” (but please remember I hadn’t thought about this); clearly he answered my question and shared a great observation.
So why was my question closed for not being focused enough?
