Phillips EECS 320 Electrons In A Crystal dt dv m qF Force = − = Free electrons in a vacuum respond to applied electric fields by the following m =electron rest mass Do electrons in the conduction band of a crystal follow the same relationship? E C E V E q=charge on an electron (1.6x1019 C) F=electric field v=velocity (“” sign for electron) J.
