(a) drift speed
(b) current density
(c) electric current
(d) electric field
The electric current will remain constant in a wire whose cross-sectional area is increasing linearly from its one end to the other, is connected across a battery of V volts.
Because current is the only quantity that does not depend on the area of cross- sections of the wire.
`I=(dq)/(dt)`, that is the rate of flow of charge, where as drift speed, current density and electric field are depends on the increasing area of cross-section with the following relations:
Drift speed : `ν_d=I/(An""e)`
Current density = `I/A`
Electric field = `J/σ`
