Drift velocity refers to the average velocity of a carrier that is moving under the influence of an electric field in a semiconductor, conductor, or electron tube. In a current-carrying circuit, a charged particle is accelerated by an electric field. It also undergoes frequent collisions with the stationary ions of the wire material.
This advanced online Drift Velocity Calculation tool is used to calculate and find the drift velocity of electrons.
Calculate the drift velocity for the given details.
Flow of current (I) = 20
Number of electrons (n) = 30
Cross section of area of wire (A) = 15
Charge of electron (Q) = 10
V = I /(n*Q*A)
V = 20/(30*15*10)
V = 20/ 4500
V = 0.0055555555
Drift velocity V) = 0.0055555555
