The density of states at the fermi energy is given by(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

D(E_F)=(3/2)n/E_F

I understand the density of states is the number of states per energy per unity volume, accounting for n/E_F. I don't understand how the 3/2 multiplying factor accounts for the volume?
