Define drift velocity of electrons for a metallic conductor.
Asked by Topperlearning User | 4th Jun, 2014, 01:23: PM
The average velocity gained by the free electrons of a conductor in the opposite direction of the externally applied electric field is known as drift velocity of electron.

- explain slow electrons and fast electricity concept.. why electricy travel fast whereas the electron in it have very low velocity.
- How does a metal conduct electricity?
- Obtain the relation between the terms drift velocity, relaxation time and electric field
- Current flows from a point that has higher electrical potential to a point of lower electrical potential potential ,didn't understand
- DRIFT VELOCITY
- Large amount of current can be obtained from the small drift velocity and small electronic charge in a conductor. Why?
- What is the effect of heating on the drift velocity of electrons of a conductor?
- If the temperature of a conductor increases, how does the relaxation time of electrons in the conductor changes?
- What is mobility of electrons and how is it related with the conductivity?
