## An electron moves in a circle of radius 10 cm with constant speed of 6*10^6 m/s. Electric current at a point on circle is:

An electron moves in a circle of radius 10 cm with constant speed of 6*10^6 m/s. Electric current at a point on circle is:

1. 1.10 * 10^-12 A
2. 1.47 * 10^-12 A
3. 1.52 * 10^-12 A
4. 1.69 * 10^-12 A

Correct answer: 3. 1.52 * 10^-12 A

Explanation:

Solution:

Number of revolutions made by electrons in one second = v/2πr = (6*10^6)/2π*0.1 m = 9.54 * 10^6

Charge crossing the point on circle per second = Number of revolutions * 1.6 * 10^-19

Charge crossing the point on circle per second = 1.5*10^-12 A
