Problem 22

We saw that there are 2N possible electron states in the 3s band of Na, where N is the total number of atoms. How many possible electron states are there in the

  1. 2s band,
  2. 2p band, and
  3. 3p band?
  4. State a general formula for the total number of possible states in any given electron band.
  1. 2N
  2. 6N
  3. 6N
  4. 2(2l+1)N2(2l+1)N
