The drift velocity is the average velocity that a particle, such as an electron, attains due to an electric field.
The free electrons inside a conductor moves with random velocities and in random directions. When an electric field is applied across the conductor the electrons will drift towards higher potential along with their random motions. Thus every electron will have a net velocity towards higher potential end of the conductor and this net velocity is referred as drift velocity of electrons.

- What is resistance?
- If the temperature of a conductor decreases,how does the relaxation time of electrons in the conductor change?
- 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
- Define drift velocity of electrons for a metallic conductor.
- 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?
