Assume: The density oF superconducting electrons is 5 × 10 27 m 3 . IF a Nb 3 Sn (type II) superconducting wire oF cross sectional area 2 . 45 mm 2 can carry a 1 × 10 5 A supercurrent, what is the average (driFt) velocity oF the superconducting elec- trons? Correct answer: 50 . 9567 m / s. Explanation: Let : n = 5 × 10 27 m 3 , A = 2 . 45 mm 2 = 2 . 45 × 10 6 m 2 , and I = 1 × 10 5 A . The driFt velocity is v = I q e n A = 1 × 10 5 A (1 . 602 × 10 19 C) × 1 (5 × 10 27 m 3 ) (2 . 45 × 10 6 m 2 ) = 50 . 9567 m / s . 002 10.0 points A length oF metal wire has a radius oF 0 . 002 m and a resistance oF 0 . 07 Ω. When the potential di±erence across the wire is 19 V, the electron driFt speed is Found to be 0 . 000315 m / s. Based on these data, calculate the density oF Free electron in the wire. Correct answer: 4 . 28563 × 10 29 m 3 . Explanation: Let : r = 0 . 002 m , R = 0 . 07 Ω , Δ V = 19 V , and v d = 0 . 000315 m / s . The current in the wire is I = Δ V R = 19 V 0 . 07 Ω = 271 . 429 A . ²rom v d = I n q A , the density oF Free elec- tron is n = I v d q e ( π r 2 ) = 271 . 429 A (0 . 000315 m / s) (1 . 6 × 10 19 C) × 1 π (0 . 002 m) 2 = 4 . 28563 × 10 29 m 3 . 003 10.0 points At 25 C, the resistance oF a segment oF gold wire is 65 Ω. When the wire is placed in a liquid bath, the resistance increases to 195 Ω. The temperature coe³cient is 0 . 0034 ( C) 1 at 20 C. What is the temperature oF the bath? Correct answer: 623 . 235 C. Explanation: Let : R 1 = 65 Ω , R 2 = 195 Ω , T 0 = 20 C , T 1 = 25 C , and α = 0 . 0034( C) 1 . Neglecting change in the shape oF the wire, we have R 1 = R 0 [1 + α ( T 1 - T 0 )] R 0 = R 1 1 + α ( T 1 - T 0 ) and R 2 = R 0 [1 + α ( T 2 - T 0 )] ,
