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??

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.

- 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.
- 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?
- Name the mobile charge carriers responsible for the production of electric current in (i) metals (ii) an electrolyte (iii) an ionized gas.
