## Homework Statement

The electron drift speed in a 1.00 -mm-diameter gold wire is 5.50*10^-5 m/s

How long does it take 1 mole of electrons to flow through a cross section of the wire?

## Homework Equations

I=n*q*V*A

## The Attempt at a Solution

I=(5.9*10^28)*(1.6*10^-19)*(3*10^-5)*(.0005^2*pi)

I=0.222 col/sec

I believe my answer is correct. The problem is I never had chem so I don't know how to convert to a mole. Any help?
