```										Dear aditya,
Electrons are the charge carriers in metals and they follow an erratic path, bouncing from atom to atom, but  generally drifting in the opposite direction of the electric field. The  speed at which they drift can be calculated from the equation:
$I=nAvQ \, ,$
where
I is the electric currentn is number of charged particles per unit volume (or charge carrier density)A is the cross-sectional area of the conductorv is the drift velocity, andQ is the charge on each particle.
