What affects the speed of electrons in a resistor?
If two resistors are connected in series, they both have the same current ; same amount of electrons passing at a point per second.
Then if one resistor is a thin wire and one resistor is a large wire, do electrons travel faster in a thin wire or a large wire of same material and external conditions.
Is it affected by the electric field strength? So Voltage / Length of resistor.
^If it is, then currentxresistance / length = current x resistivity x length/(area x length) = current x resistivity /area .So thinner wires have a higher electric field strength hence electrons travel faster, is this true?
note: it feels like the oppsoite of what you would think as it feels like electrons will have a easier time travelling through wires of large cross-sectional area.
