										Sol. i = 1 A, A = 1 mm2 = 1 * 10^–6 m^2

F’ cu = 9000 kg/m^3
Molecular mass has N base 0 atoms
= m Kg has (N base 0/M * m) atoms = N base 0AI9000/36.5 * 10^-3
No.of atoms = No.of electrons
n = No.of electrons/Unit volume = N base 0Af/mAI = N base 0f/M
= 6 * 10^23 * 9000/63.5 * 10^-3
i = V base d n A e.
⇒ V base d = i/nAe = 1/6 * 10^23 *9000/63.3 * 10^-3 *10^-6 *1.6 * 10^-19
= 63.5 * 10^-3/6 * 10^23 *9000 * 10^-6 * 1.6 * 10^-19 = 63.5 * 10^-3/6 * 9 * 1.6 * 10^26 *10^-19 * 10^-6
= 63.5 * 10^10-3/6 * 9 * 1.6 * 10 = 63.5 * 10^-3/6 * 9 *16
