If you stretch a wire, increasing its length will the number of electrons per cubic metre decrease? Assuming the Cross sectional area stays the same. The number of electrons will surely stay the same, and wont increase just by you stretching it, and the number of cubic metres has increased, so n (electrons per cubic metre) will decrease?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
