Thus, the change that passes is ( ) V Q t R = , giving ( ) ( ) ( ) 1.00 V 0.100 A 20.0 s 2.00 C 10.0 Q t = = = 69 70 CHAPTER 17 17.8 Assuming that, on average, each aluminum atom contributes one electron, the density of charge carriers is the same as the number of atoms per cubic meter. This is A A density N n mass per atom M N M = = = , or ( ) ( ) ( ) 23 3 6 3 3 28 3 6.02 10 mol 2.7 g cm 10 cm 1 m 6.0 10 m 26.98 g mol n = = The drift speed of the electrons in the wire is then ( ) ( ) ( ) 4...
