the electrical resistivity ρ of a metal is proportional to the probability that an electron is seattered by the vibrating atoms in the lattice an this probability is in turn proportional to the mean square amplitude of vibration of these atoms.How dose the electrical resistivity ρ of the metal depend on its absolute temperature in the range near room temperature or above where classical statistical mechanics can validly be applied to discuss the vibrations of the atomes in the metals?
