The electrons reach a terminal velocity which is dependent on the resistive force caused by interactions with the lattice. where y is a constant which represents a resistive force which is proportional to electron velocity, preventing the electrons from being accelerated to infinite velocity.

Aluminium has a Debye temperature of 430 K. Prove that the Debye theory and the Dulong-Petit law give the same results at high temperatures. Estimate the thermal energy of 1 gram mole of aluminium at 300 K by using Fig. 9. Explain why the results are different. 3 Conduction Electrons in Materials - Classical Approach In this chapter we shall approach the description of electrons in solids using one of the simplest models possible, that of electrons as classical particles moving almost freely within the material experiencing minimal interactions with the ionic potential.

It has given us a relatively simple introduction to the concept of quantized energy states because it can be quite easily visualized, even from a classical argument, why the quantization of lattice vibration occurs. When we come to discussing the quantization of electron energies rather more abstraction will be required. However, having understood the reasons for quantization of lattice vibrations in this chapter, it should be easier to follow the discussion of quantization of electron energies in which the concept of imposed boundary conditions again plays a crucial role.
