Exercise 2.1-1

Derive and Discuss numbers for µ

Calculate numerical values for the mobility µ of some typical metals.
Take typical (metal) values for specific conductivity s and concentrations of electrons n and then calculate typical numbers for the mobility µ - do not take the values from the table! I you do not understand the German link, use this one.
Consider typical field strengths for metals by picking suitable current densities, and then derive typical values for the drift velocity vD.
