On the basis of electron drift, derive an expression for resistivity of a conductor in terms of number density of free electrons and relaxation time.
On what factors does resistivity of a conductor depend??

Expert Answer:

Thanks for asking us a question in Ask the Expert section of TopperLearning.com.
The same is explained in NCERT _Class 12 Physics textbook.
You can refer to Chp.03_3.5 DRIFT OF ELECTRONS AND THE ORIGIN OF RESISTIVITY (Page number 97 and 98) of the same.
In case there is any particular doubt in understanding the same, feel free to post your query.
