Physics 7B WS E7 (rev. 3.0) Page 1 E-7. DC Circuits Questions for discussion 1 . The figure below shows a cutaway view of two current-carrying wires, a thick one and a thin one. In the thick wire, electrons are moving with a speed of 3 cm/sec. In the thin wire, electrons are moving faster, with a speed of 5 cm/sec. Let both wires have the same electron density (the number of electrons per unit volume) be ρ . a) First consider the thick wire. In one second, how many electrons will pass a given point in the wire? b) Next consider the thin wire. In one second, how many electrons will pass a given point in this wire? c) Which wire carries the greater current? d) What are the numerical values of the two currents, in amps? 2 . In the circuit shown below, what is the value of the missing current? In which direction does it flow?
