material. For i=1, 2, denote ° length: Li, 0 cross sectional area: Ai, ° applied voltage Vi: ° field inside : Hi 0 average drift velocity: vdi. V!
Given: A2=Al, L2=2Ll, V1=V2=V.

m So the drift speed or the current density is proportional to
E. This relation holds only if r is strictly constant. Estimate how much will 1: be changed, if vdrjﬁ is doubled,
for a typical case where the average thermal speed is vth~103km/s, and average drift speed, vdliﬁ~104m/s. 1. It increases by more than 0.01%.
It stays essentially the same, i.e.
the change is less than 0.01%. 3. It decreases by more than 0.01%. Hint: The average speed of free electrons V=IVth + Vdriﬁl. Explanation: Based on vector the reader should convince

medium. They collide with the atoms along the way. As
the temperature increases, what will happen to the average collision time, 1:? What will happen to the resistivity, p? Choose one: Hint: p = 2 where I is the collision time. nq r Explanation: When the temperature is increased, the
atoms in the medium are "vibrating" with faster average
speed. Free electrons will collide with atoms more
frequently. So the average collision time I is decreased.
The resistivity p=m/(nq2t), i.e. p is inversely proportional
to 1:. As the collision time decreases, resistivity increases.
Ans=2. 27.6.1 Power in two circuits case 2 V 3 identical bulbs are connected in two ways as
shown. Determine PII/PI, where PI is the power ofper bulb in case I, and P11 is in case 11.
