Unformatted text preview: field of intensity = 10 v/cm is applied? 5. For the two conditions in problem 4, draw qualitatively the distribution of the electrons either in the momentum or k space. 6. Write down the expression for dNv x /dv x , the distribution of electrons as a function of v x , the x-component of velocity in a metallic conductor. 7. Write the expression for the number of electrons per unit volume that will escape into vacuum at temperature T given E B is the surface barrier energy. You can express your answer in terms of the work-function ( = E B- E F ). 8. Assume a solid has 10 22 electrons per cm 3 . What is the average speed of the electrons at T = 0K. 9. Suppose E varies as 0.5 (h/2 } 2 (k k ) 2 /(2 m). What is the effective mass of an electron at the state with k = 0.35k ? Why does it not vary with k?...
