Current Electricity – Drift Velocity based numerical

Two different wires X and Y of same diameter but different materials are joined together in series     across a battery . If the number density of electrons in X is  twice that in Y . Find ratio of drift velocity of electrons in two wires .

Asked Kavita

Answer:

In series combination, the current is the same.

I = nAev

=> n1v1 = n2 v2

=> v1:v2 =n2:n1
