What is the relationship between resistance and temperature of the wire?

The resistance-change factor per degree Celsius of temperature. A positive coefficient for a material means that its resistance increases with an increase in temperature.

when the object has a high temperature the resistance is higher due to the molecules that are disrupted and the flow of the current are not moving freely

When the temperature increases, the wire becomes more resistant because the molecules gain kinetic energy because of the heat which leads to atoms colliding more often, this leads to a slower flow which results in more resistance.

True that my colleagues

can be also explained with this linear relationship..... change in resistance= first-order temperature coefficient  K Multiple by a change in temperature hence we can say R=kT directly proportional and when you increase the temperature electrons gains kinetic energy and start to move along the wire increasing resistance in the process.

The higher the temperature the higher the resistance of the wire
