ECE3025, Summer 2011, Quiz 4 June 17, 2010 1. (2 points) Name a condition permits an electric field to exist in a metal. 2. (4 points) Derive the formula for the resistance of a material with length L , cross-sectional area A , and conductivity σ . 3. (2 points) Under what conditions do we assume that we have a surface current density and under what conditions do we assume we have a volume current density? 4. (2 points) If your resistor had a fixed length due to a design constraint, how would you modify your
