(b) Enter the larger possible value of R.

The point of this problem is to show how slowly electrons travel on average through a thin wire, even for large values of current.
A wire made from iron with a cross-section of diameter 0.840 mm carries a current of 11.0 A. Calculate the "areal current density"; in other words, how many electrons per square meter per
second flow through this wire? (Enter your answer without units.)
