Comparing to prob. 5), we see that we get the same result for the magnetoresistivity without assuming a small B ­field. 6e) Show that for small B ­fields, eqn. (via) can be written as ! !! !

Answer the following questions. 7a) Derive an expression for the Hall factor in 3D and show that for ionized impurity scattering, it gives rH = 1.93 .
