How many electrons pass through a cross section of the wire in each
second? b) What is the resistance of the wire ? c) What is the
potential difference between the ends of the wire? d) What is the
resistance of the wire at the temperature of T2= 100 0C?

Answer #1

The solution is given below

A 10 gauge copper wire carries a current of 12 A. Assuming one
free electron per copper atom, calculate the drift velocity of the
electrons. (The cross-sectional area of a 10-gauge wire is 5.261
mm2.)

A 7.54 m long copper wire (ρcopper =
1.69×10-8 Ω.m) has a cross sectional area 6.96
mm2. If the wire is reshaped to twice its original
length with no change of volume, find its new wire resistance.

A 1.0 m length of copper wire has a cross-sectional area of
0.4x10-6 m2 and carries a current of 50 mA (a
fairly typical amount of current).
What is the current density magnitude in this wire?
What is the electron drift speed in this wire?
How long will It take for an electron to travel the length of
the wire (traveling at the speed you just calculated)?
What is the magnitude of the electric field inside the
wire?

A wire of Nichrome (a nickel-chromium-iron alloy commonly used
in heating elements) is 1.7 m long and 1.5 mm2 in
cross-sectional area. It carries a current of 3.5 A when a 2.0 V
potential difference is applied between its ends. Calculate the
resistivity of Nichrome.

A copper wire 100m long with cross-sectional area of 2x10^-4
cm^2 is heated from room temperature of 25 C to 200 C. Find
a) The initial resistance of wire
b) The increase in resistance from 25 to 200 C
c) The drift speed of the “electron group” in the wire, if the
current is 3A and density of
electrons is 8.5x10^28 electrons /m 3
d) The voltage drop across the wire resistor for this current of
3A
e) The power...

An aluminum wire having a cross-sectional area of 3.10 ✕
10−6 m2 carries a current of 3.00 A. The
density of aluminum is 2.70 g/cm3. Assume each aluminum
atom supplies one conduction electron per atom. Find the drift
speed of the electrons in the wire.

an aluminium wire having a cross-sectional area A = 4 x 10^-6
m^2 carries a current I = 5 A. find the drift speed (vD) of the
electrons in the wire. The density of aluminium is 2.7 g/cm^3 and
its molar mass = 27 g/mol. Assume that one conduction electrons is
supplied by each atom. Avogadro's constant is 6.023 x 10^23
atom/mole and e = 1.6 x 10^-19 C.

A square loop made of copper wire is falling out of a region
where there is a magnetice field Bext = 0.06 T. The loop
is falling with a constant velocity because of the current induced
in the loop.
What is the velocity of the loop? Give your answer in m/s to at
least three significant digits to avoid being counted wrong for
rounding.
It will be useful to know that:
The mass density of copper (mass per volume) is...

A copper wire is 8.00 m long, and has a
cross-sectional area of 1.00 × 10–4 m2. This wire forms a 1turn
loop in the shape of a square and is then connected to a battery
that applies a potential difference of 0.100 V. If the loop is
placed in a uniform magnetic field of magnitude 0.400 T, what is
the maximum torque that can act on it? The resistivity of copper is
1.70 × 10–8 Ω · m. Define...
