comment what are the methodes to improve head lights of a car?
As the wire gets older, it corrodes. This reduces the cross-section of the wire (as some of the copper has turned into copper oxide), and so increases the resistance (resistance being proportional to length divided by cross section) - put simply, the wire is smaller so less electrons can fit through it!
