The number of electrons passing through the light bulb in 1.00 s would not change. 25.5.I DENTIFY and S ET U P : Use Eq. (25.3) to calculate the drift speed and then use that to find the time to travel the length of the wire.

Increasing the diameter by some factor decreases the drift speed by the square of that factor....
