A 71 . 0 cm length of 12-gauge copper wire that is 2 . 05 mm in diameter carries 4 . 85 A of current. (a) How much time does it take for an electron to travel the length of the wire? (b) Repeat part (a) for 6-gauge copper wire (diameter 4 . 12 mm) of the same length that carries the same current. (c) Generally speaking, how does changing the diameter of a wire that carries a given amount of current a f ect the drift velocity of the electrons in the wire? Problem 2 In the circuit of the Fgure below, Fnd (a) the current through the 8 . 0 Ω resistor and (b) the total rate of dissipation of electrical energy in the 8 . 0 Ω resistor and in the internal resistance of the batteries. (c) In one of the batteries, chemical energy is being converted
