11. According to Eq. 42-9, the Fermi energy is given by E F = µ 3 16 2 π 2 / 3 h 2 m n 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 A = µ 3 16 2 π 2 / 3 h 2 m = µ 3 16 2 π 2 / 3 (6 . 626 × 10 34 J · s) 2 9 . 109 ×
