(a) Calculate the electron density in the metallic state of silver. Density = 10.5 g/cm 3 , atomic weight = 108. Assume 1 electron per atom. (b) Calculate the Fermi energy (in units of eV). (c) Using the known energy distribution of the electrons, calculate the average energy of all the electrons in silver at T=0 o K. (d) Calculate the average speed of all the electrons at T=0 o K (hint: energy and speed of individual electrons are related)...
