A current of 1400 A exits in a rectangular (0.6 X 9.0)cm copper bus bar. The current is due to free electrons moving through the bus bar at an average velocity of v meters/second. If the concentration of free electrons is 10^29 electrons per cubic meter and if they are uniformly dispersed throughout the bus bar, then what is the average velocity of an electron?

I=dQ/dt where Q is the total moving charges
This solution uses a rearranged version of the equation for current to simply solve for average velocity.
