# Copper Drift Velocity

A copper wire of resistivity $$1.8 \times 10^{-8} \:\Omega\cdot\text{m}$$ and length $$L = 1 \text{ m}$$ is connected to either terminal of a $$1.5 \text{ V}$$ battery. If the density of conduction electrons is $$3 \times 10^{29} \text{ m}^{-3}$$, find the drift velocity of the conduction electrons in millimeters per second.
