RELATION BETWEEN CURRENT AND DRIFT VELOCITY

Let l is the length of the conductor and A uniforms area of cross-section.

Therefore, the volume of the conductor = Al

If n is the number of free electrons per unit volume of the conductor, then the total number of free electrons in the conductor=A/n.

If e is the charge on each electron then total charge on all the free electrons in the conductor

Q=A/ne                                     (1) Continue reading “RELATION BETWEEN CURRENT AND DRIFT VELOCITY”
