# Does Nichrome have high resistance?

Nichrome mainly consists of $80$ percentage of nickel and $20$ percentage of chromium and even some minute percentages of iron and other elements which make nickel more resistant and Nichrome has a melting point of about ${1400^o}C$ which is very high and enables nichrome wire to be used in many heating appliances.
Hence, yes Nichrome wire has very high resistance and has an approximate value of its resistivity around $112.2ohm - cm$ which is very high.
