A length of wire has a radius of 3.00 x 10-3 m and a resistance of 0.200 ohms. When the potential

difference across the wire is 10.0 volts, the electron drift speed is found to be 2.98 x10-4 m/s. On the

basis of these data, calculate the density of free electrons in the wire.

J=nev,

where

J is the current density,

n is free electron density,

e=1.610⁻¹⁹C ,

drift velocity v= 2.9810⁻⁴ m/s

J=U/RA,

where

U=10 V,

R=0.2 Ω,

A= πr²

nev= U/Rπr²

n= U/Rπr² ev=...
