    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    my question is. what is the difference between the thermal motion and the drift velocity, how r they both created in a conductor . hope someone will answer it in a detailed manner.

    2. Relevant equations



    3. The attempt at a solution

    thankx marcus for ur prompt reply,i really appreciate it. i have one more question to ask.
    is the thermal motion the irregular motion of conduction electrons in the conductor; when there is no electric field applied to it.
