Resize HTML element with jQuery and input[type="range"]

Hi! Let's say I have a

<canvas width="500" height="400" ></canvas>

And I have an

<input id="pWidth" type="range" min=300 max=1024 value=500>

I need a working jQuery method to change the width of the html <canvas> to be the exact value that the input[type="range"] has, even if it changes (draging the slider).

$(canvas).attr("width", $("#pWidth").val());

is not working.

Anyone knowing a working method here?
