When temperature is raised, the ions/atoms of the conductor start vibrating with increased amplitude of vibration and greater frequency. Due to which the electrons moving towards the positive end of conductor will suffermore rapid collisions and hence time of relaxation decreaseds. As thus drift velocity decrease. Therefore |
