According to Eq. 419, the Fermi energy is given by E h m n F F H G I K J 3 16 2 2 3 2 2 3 / / where n is the number of conduction electrons per unit volume, m is the mass of an electron, and h is the Planck constant. This can be written E F = An 2/3 , where 2/3 2/3 2 34 2 38 2 2 31 3 3 (6.626 10 J s) 5.842 10 J s / kg . 9.109 10 kg 16 2 16 2 h A m Since 2 2 1 J 1 kg m / s , the units of A can be taken to be m 2 ·J. Dividing by 19 1.602 10 J/eV, we obtain 19 2 3.65 10 m eV. A 2. Equation 415 gives 3/ 2 1/ 2 3 8 2 ( ) m N E E h for the density of states associated with the conduction electrons of a metal.

N E CE This is consistent with that shown in Fig. 416. 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 .

(a) Equation 415 gives 3/ 2 1/ 2 3 8 2 ( ) m N E E h for the density of states associated with the conduction electrons of a metal.
