(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

An electric current of 6 A flows through a 5 mm diameter copper wire with a length of 10 m.

What is the average number of electrons that flow through a cross section of the wire per second?

2. Relevant equations

I=Q/t or I=dQ/dt Maybe, im not sure

3. The attempt at a solution

1 Coulomb = 6.24e18

6*6.24e18

3.744E19 e/s
