PHY2061 R. D. Field Department of Physics chp29_2.doc University of Florida Electrical Conductivity and Ohms Law Free Charged Particle: For a free charged particle in an electric field, r r r Fm aq E == and thus r r a q m E = . The acceleration is proportional to the electric field strength E and the velocity of the particle increases with time! Charged Particle in a Conductor: However, for a charged particle in a conductor the a verage velocity is proportional to the electric field strength E and since
