MSE 2620, Spring ‘09 Homework #2 Instructions: Due Tuesday, February 26 th , 2009. Turn in one solution per group and be sure to include the group letter, the names of the group members, and if any group members did not participate enough to deserve full credit along with the reasons why. Question 1: Conductivity and The Mean Free Path a) Sodium is a monovalent metal with a density of 0.97g/cm 3 and a BCC crystal structure. Estimate the mean separation (nm) between an electron and one metal ion, assuming that electrons spend the most time between a metal ion and its second nearest neighbor. b) Use the potential energy between this electron and metal ion pair to find the mean speed of an electron (m/s) (HINT: Virial Theorem). c) Given that the mean free time between scattering events from thermal vibrations of the lattice is 4.3E-14s, find the drift mobility (m 2 /Vs), the conductivity (1/Ωm) and the mean free path of an electron (m).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
