    I need help solving a problem
    A 60 g hollow copper cylinder is 10 cm long and has an inner diameter of 1.0 cm. The current density along the length of the cylinder is 170,000 A/m^2. What is the current in the cylinder?

    the electron density for copper is 8.5E28

    thanks for your help

    In the future, post questions like this in the homework section.

    Any thoughts on how to approach this?
