A length of wire has a radius of 3.00 ~ 10-3 m and a resistance of 0.200 . When the potential difference across the wire is 10.0 V, the electron drift speed is found to be 2.98 ~ 10-4 m/s. On the basis of these data, calculate the density of free electrons in the wire.

Three pieces of wood are needed for a project. They are to be cut from a 90-cm-long piece of wood. The longest piece is to be 3 times as long as the middle-sized piece and the shortest piece is to be 10 cm shorter than the middle-sized piece. Can this be done with two cuts? If...

A hot-wire anemometer is a temperature-based instrument for measuring velocities in a flowing gas. The key component of the device is a very fine wire (diameter = 0.0004 in., length = 0.20 in.) that is electrically heated. The wire is positioned so that the air stream passes ...

If the EMF produced in a wire is 0.88 volts and the wire moves perpendicular to a magnetic field of strength 0.075 newtons/ampmeter at a speed of 4.20 meters/second, what is the length of the wire in the magnetic field?

Physics (PLEASE HELP)
The force is q V B and is perpendicular to both the wire and the B field, which makes it radial inward. (A negative charge moving opposite to the current direction is attracted to the wire). For B, use Ampere's law of a straight wire. B = u * I /(2 pi R) where u is the ...
