Unformatted text preview: appropriate. 3.) Plot the Fermi distribution function as a function of W, for a series of absolute temperatures, 500K, 5 x 10 3 K, 5 x 10 4 K, assuming that W f /k B = 0.5. At approximately what temperature can the Fermi distribution function be approximated by the Boltzmann distribution function? 4.) Estimate the time between collisions for Na at room temperature, assuming that the electrons effective mass is the actual mass of the electron. What are the electrons colliding with?...
