I read this in book that if we consider a conductor in which current I is flowing at a potential difference of V then in time ∆t charge equal to I ∆t will flow across the ends of conductor. But in time ∆t that much amount of charge will only be able to travel distance equal to drift velocity multiplied by the time i.e.Vb x ∆t, isn’t it.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Please tell me how this happens.
