**Question 1: ****(a) What is the probability that a quantum state whose energy is 0.10eV above the Fermi energy will be occupied? Assume a sample temperature of 800 K. ****(b) What is the probability of occupancy for a state that is 0.10 eV below the Fermi energy?****Solution:-**

(a) We can find P(E) from equation P(E) = 1/[e^{(E-Ef)/kT+1]}. But let us first calculate the (dimensionless) exponent in that equation:

E-E_{F}/kT = (0.10 eV)/(8.62Ã—10^{-5} eV/K) (800 K)

= 1.45

Inserting this exponent into equation P(E) = 1/[e^{(E-Ef)/kT+1]}, we get,

P(E) = 1/[e^{1.45} +1]

= 0.19 or 19%

Therefore, the probability that a quantum state whose energy is 0.10eV above the fermi energy occupied will be 19%.

(b) The exponent in equation P(E) = 1/[e^{(E-Ef)/kT+}^{1]} has the same absolute value as in (a) but is now negative. Thus from this equation,

P(E) = 1/e^{-1.45}+1

= 0.81 or 81%

From the above observation we conclude that, the probability of occupancy for a state that is 0.10 eV below the Fermi energy would be 81%. For states below the Fermi energy, we are often more interested in the probability that the state is not occupied. This just 1- P(E), or 19%. Note that it is the same as the probability of occupancy in (a).

**Question 2: ****Calculate the frequency of radio-waves radiated out by an oscillating circuit consisting of a capacitor of capacity 0.02 ÂµF and inductance 8ÂµH.****Solution:-**

Here, C = 0.02 ÂµF

= 2Ã—10^{-8} F

L = 8 ÂµH

= 8Ã—10^{-6} H

We know that, frequency, f = 1/[2Ï€âˆšLC]

Substitute the value of L nad C in the equation f = 1/[2Ï€âˆšLC], we get,

f = 1/[2Ï€âˆšLC]

= 1/[2Ï€âˆš(2Ã—10^{-8} F) (8Ã—10^{-6} H)]

= [1/2Ï€Ã—4]Ã—10^{7}

= 397.8Ã—10^{3} Hz

= 397.8 kilo Hz

From the above observation we conclude that, the frequency of radio-waves radiated out by an oscillating circuit consisting of a capacitor of capacity 0.02 ÂµF and inductance 8ÂµH would be 397.8 kilo Hz.

**Question 3: ****A triode has a mutual conductance of 3 mAV ^{-1} and anode resistance of 20000 ohm. Find the load resistance which must be introduced in the circut to obtain a voltage gain of 40.**

Here, gm = 3 mA/V

= 3Ã—10^{-3} mho

r_{p} = 20000 ohm

Âµ = r_{p}Ã—g_{m }

= 20000Ã— 3Ã—10^{-3}

= 60

Since, voltage gain = Âµ / [1+ (r_{p}/R_{L})]

40 = 60 / [1+ (20000/R_{L})]

So, 1+ (20000/R_{L}) = 60/40

= 3/2

Or, 20000/R_{L} = 3/2 â€“ 1

= Â½

So, R_{L} = 40000 ohm

Thus, from the above observation we conclude that, the load resistance which introduced in the circut to obtain a voltage gain of 40 would be 40000 ohm.

**Question 4: ****The junction diode in the following circuit requires a minimum current of 1mA to be above the knee point (0.7V) of its I-V characteristic curve. The voltage across the diode is independent of current above the knee point, If V _{B} = 5V, then what will be the the maximum value of R so that the voltage is above the knee point ?**

Here,V

Substituting 5 V for V

get,

V

5 = 0.7 + [(10

Or, R = 4.3 KÎ©

From the above observation we conclude that, the the maximum value of R so that the voltage is above the knee point would be 4.3 KÎ©.
