Study Guide- Chapter 10 Compare resistance to resistivity. How does conductivity relate to resistivity? Identify the parameters in the conductivity equation and show how the various parameters are affected by the type of material (conductor, semiconductor, and insulator), temperature, purity, and defect concentration. What is the temperature coefficient of resistivity? Know how to sketch and interpret the band structure for a conductor, semiconductor and insulator. ( 29 i i i i N q σ μ =
