Physics 2102, February 25, 2011. Activity 1: A potential difference of 3.00 mV is set up across a 2.00 cm length of copper wire with a radius of 2.00 mm. (a) Calculate how much charge drifts through a cross section of the wire in 3.00 ms: (b) Calculate the magnitude of the electric field in the wire Physics 2102, February 25, 2011.
