The number densit

Answer :

Number density of free electrons in a copper conductor, n = 8.5 × 1028 per meter cube

Length of Copper Wire l = 3 meter

Area of cross section of wire A = 2 × 10-6 meter square

Current drawn by wire is given 3 Ampere

Since I = nAeVd

Here Vd is the drift velocity and “e” is the electron charge 1.6 × 10-19 Coulomb

And Vd Drift velocity is


I = nAel/t

Or t = nAel/I

t = 2.7 × 104 second
