## Resistivity of Material Solution

STEP 0: Pre-Calculation Summary
Formula Used
Resistivity of Material = (2*[Mass-e])/(Number of Free Charge Particles per Unit Volume*[Charge-e]^2*Relaxation time)
ρmaterial = (2*[Mass-e])/(n*[Charge-e]^2*𝛕)
This formula uses 2 Constants, 3 Variables
Constants Used
[Charge-e] - Charge of electron Value Taken As 1.60217662E-19
[Mass-e] - Mass of electron Value Taken As 9.10938356E-31
Variables Used
Resistivity of Material - (Measured in Ohm Meter) - Resistivity of Material is a measure of how strongly a material opposes the flow of electric current, dependent on the material's properties and temperature.
Number of Free Charge Particles per Unit Volume - Number of Free Charge Particles per Unit Volume is the quantity of free charge carriers available per unit volume of a conductor.
Relaxation time - (Measured in Second) - Relaxation time is the time taken by the current in a circuit to decay to a certain fraction of its initial value.
STEP 1: Convert Input(s) to Base Unit
Number of Free Charge Particles per Unit Volume: 3610000000 --> No Conversion Required
Relaxation time: 0.05 Second --> 0.05 Second No Conversion Required
