2.(i) How many atoms are present in a unit cell of a BCC lattice? (ii) Find the volume density ofatoms of the BCC lattice if lattice constant is 5 Å. [2+8=10] 3. (i) Prove the lattice constant of a FCC lattice is 𝑎 =2√2𝑟 where r is the atomic radius. (ii) If the atomic radius for a FCC lattice is 0.175nm, find the volume of the unit cell. [6+4=10] 4. Find out the atomic packing factor of a BCC crystal lattice whose lattice constant is ‘a’.  5. Find out the Miller Indices of the following. [5x4=20] (i) (ii) (iii) (iv) (v) 6 6.Find out the (i) momentum and (ii) de-Broglie wavelength of an electron travelling with avelocity of 107 cm/s. Consider mass of electron as 9.1×10-31 Kg. [5+5=10] 7. Determine the probability that an energy level 3KT above Fermi level is occupied by an electron at T = 300 K. [Hint: Difference between E and EF is 3KT]  8. Calculate the (i) probability that a state in the conduction band is occupied by an electron f(EC) and calculate the (ii) thermal equilibrium electron concentration (n0) in silicon at T= 100 K. Assume the Fermi energy is 0.25 eV below the conduction band. The value of NC for silicon at T = 100 K is 2.8 x I019 cm-3. [5+5 = 10] 9. Calculate the intrinsic carrier concentration in gallium arsenide at T = 300 K. The values of NC and NV at 300 K for gallium arsenide are 4.7 x 1017 cm-3 and 7.0 x 1018 cm-3, respectively. Assume the bandgap energy of gallium arsenide is 1.42 eV.
