A steady current flows in a metallic conductor of non-uniform cross section.Which of these quantities is constant along the conductor-

1)Current

2)Current density

3)Drift speed

4)Electric field

When a steady current flows in a metallic conductor of non-uniform cross-section, the current flowing through the conductor is constant. Current density, electric field, and drift speed are inversely proportional to the area of cross-section. Therefore, they are not constant.

only current. rest all depend on area of cross section inversly.
