Large amount of current can be obtained from the small drift velocity and small electronic charge in a conductor. Why?
Asked by Topperlearning User | 21st Apr, 2014, 12:44: PM
Magnitude of current depends upon the electron density. The density of electrons per unit area is so enormous, that a small drift in electrons produce a large amount of current in a conductor.

- 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
- DRIFT VELOCITY
- Define drift velocity of electrons for a metallic conductor.
- What is the effect of heating on the drift velocity of electrons of a conductor?
