Current density  represents the load which passes through cross-unit area, in unit time.

j=Q/(Scross*delta t)=l/Scross

Current density is a size vector, targeted by the drift speed of load carriers

q=RI^2/(Sl)=[ro*l/(S^2L)]j^2*s^2=ro *j^2=1.5kW/m^3

This is the "local" form of Joule's law P=RI^2
