Solution:

Here, we are given that the number of free electrons = 2 x 10 21 and average drift speed is 0.25mm/s.

Thus, the passing strength thr the cross section in one second n = 2 x 10 21 / 10 x 0.25 = 5 x 1019

And I = charge per second = ne

= 5 x 1019 x 1.6 x 10–19

The average drift speed of current flowing = 8A

Thanks & Regards,
