Suppose that i = 7.0 10 18 electrons/s are drifting through a copper wire. (This is a typical value for a simple circuit.) The diameter of the wire is 0.5 mm. In this case, about how many minutes would it take for a single electron in the electron sea to drift from one end to the other end of a wire 29 cm long? 11.38 11.4 minutes (A puzzle: if the drift speed is so slow, how can a lamp light up as soon as you turn it on? We'll come back to this in the next chapter.) Read the eBook
