# A current passes through a resistor. Let K1 and K2 be the average kinetic energy of the conduction electrons and metal ions respectively. Then:

$\begin {array} {1 1} (A)\;K1 < K2 & \quad (B)\;K1 = K2 \\ (C)\;K1 > K2 & \quad (D)\;All\: three\: are\: possible \end {array}$

The average kinetic energy of conduction electrons are greater than metal ions.
Ans : (C)
