Ohm’s Law states that the current flowing in a circuit is directly proportional to the applied potential difference and inversely proportional to the resistance in the circuit. In other words by doubling the voltage across a circuit the current will also double.

## Q. How do you prove drift velocity?

When electrons with density n and charge Q causes a current ‘I’ to flow through a conductor of cross-sectional area A, Drift velocity v can be calculated through the formula I = nAvQ.

## Q. What is the relation between current and drift velocity?

Current is the flow of free charges, such as electrons and ions. Drift velocity vd is the average speed at which these charges move. Current I is proportional to drift velocity vd, as expressed in the relationship I=nqAvd I = nqAv d . Here, I is the current through a wire of cross-sectional area A.

## Q. Is drift a velocity?

In physics a drift velocity is the average velocity attained by charged particles, such as electrons, in a material due to an electric field. In general, an electron in a conductor will propagate randomly at the Fermi velocity, resulting in an average velocity of zero.

## Q. What is the relation between current and voltage?

Ohm’s law defines the relationship between the voltage, current, and resistance in an electric circuit: i = v/r. The current is directly proportional to the voltage and inversely proportional to the resistance.

## Q. How high can current go?

The amount of internal current a person can withstand and still be able to control the muscles of the arm and hand can be less than 10 milliamperes (milliamps or mA). Currents above 10 mA can paralyze or “freeze” muscles.

## Q. Do thicker wires have more resistance?

The longer a wire is the more resistance it has due to the longer path the electrons have to flow along to get from one end to the other. The larger the cross sectional area, the lower the resistance since the electrons have a larger area to flow through. This will continue to apply no matter how thick the wire is.

## Q. Which change decreases the resistance of a piece of copper wire?

Resistance decreases as copper (or any other metal) is cooled. Its atoms vibrate less, and so they impede the flow of electrons less. Pure copper has less resistance than copper containing impurities. Impurity atoms are a different size to copper atoms, so they get in the way of moving electrons.

## Q. What is called resistance?

Resistance is a measure of the opposition to current flow in an electrical circuit. Resistance is measured in ohms, symbolized by the Greek letter omega (Ω). Ohms are named after Georg Simon Ohm (1784-1854), a German physicist who studied the relationship between voltage, current and resistance.

## Q. How many types of resistance are there?
