Unformatted text preview: HW#7: Solid State Phys320 Spring 2007 (Reshchikov) p. 1 Problem 1 Using &quot;unit analysis&quot;, find the total number N of Cu atoms (M = 63.55 g/mole, = 8.96 g/cm 3 ) in a Cu wire of length 200 m and diameter of 0.1 mm. Assuming that each atom of Cu provides one free electron, find the concentration of free electrons in this wire?
