Statement of a problem № 41068


The temperature coefficient of resistivity a is given by  Where p is the resistivity at the temperature T. Equation (25.6) then follows if a is assumed constant and much smaller than (T – T0)-1 (a) If a is not constant but is given by a = -n/T, where T is the Kelvin temperature and n is a constant, show that the resistivity is given by p = a/Tn, where a is a constant. (b) From Fig, you can see that such a relationship might he used as a rough approximation for a semiconductor. Using the values of p and a for carbon from Tables 25.1 and 25.2, determine a and n. (In Table 25.1. assume that room temperature" means 293 K). (c) Using your result from part (b). Determine the resistivity of carbon at -196°C and 300°C. (Remember to express T in Kelvins.)
