Hi there!(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

So I'm aware that the phonon contribution is proportional to T^3 and for electrons it is T (this is for metals where the first result comes from the Debye model). I was wondering where the electron contribution is derived from and why it is such a low dependence.
