(b) The probability that a state with energy E is occupied at temperature T is given by P E e E E kT F ( ) ( )/ = + 1 1 where k is the Boltzmann constant and E F is the Fermi energy. Now, E – E F = 0.0620 eV and 5 ( ) / (0.0620eV) /(8.62 10 eV / K)(320K) 2.248 F E E kT = × = , so 2.248 1 ( ) 0.0955. 1 P E e = = + See Appendix B or Sample Problem 411 for the value of k . 2. We note that there is one conduction electron per atom and that the molar mass of gold is 197g mol / . Therefore, combining Eqs. 412, 413 and 414 leads to n = × = × ( . / )( / ) ( / ) . . 19 3 10 197 590 10 3 6 3 3 28 g cm cm m g mol) / (6.02 10 mol m 23 1 3 3.

The number of atoms per unit volume is given by n d M = / , where d is the mass density of copper and M is the mass of a single copper atom. Since each atom contributes one conduction electron, n is also the number of conduction electrons per unit volume. Since the molar mass of copper is 63.54g / mol, A = 23 1 22 / (63.54g / mol)/(6.022 10 mol ) 1.055 10 g A M A N = = × = × .
