5. (a) The magnitude of the current density is given by J = nqv d , where n is the number of particles per unit volume, q is the charge on each particle, and v d is the drift speed of the particles. The particle concentration is n = 2.0 × 10 8 /cm 3 = 2.0 × 10 14 m –3 , the charge is q = 2 e = 2(1.60 × 10 –19 C) = 3.20 × 10 –19 C, and the drift speed is 1.0 × 10 5 m/s. Thus,
