Write in Short

The energy vs wave vector (Ek) relationship near the bottom of a band for a solid can be approximation as E=A(ka)2+B(ka)4 , where the lattice constant a=2.1 . The values of A and B are 6.3×1019J and 3.2×1020J , respectively. At the bottom of the conduction band, the ratio of the effective mass of the electron to the mass of fee electron is _ . (Give your answer up to two decimal placed)

(Take =1.05×1034Js, mass of free electron =9.1×1031kg )

Passage

The tight binding energy dispersion (Ek) relation for electrons in a one – dimensional array of atoms having lattice constant a and total length L is, E=E0β2γcos(ka) ; where E0,β and γ are constants and k is the wave – vector.
