(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

a) Calculate the Fermi energy for copper.

b) Calculate the ratio of the number of occupied levels at an energy of 8.5 eV to the number occupied levels at the Fermi energy at room temperature.

c) Based on your answer to a) and b) above, show that at room temperature, the conduction electron gas must be treated as a quantum gas of indistinguishable particles

3. The attempt at a solution

I know that the fermi energy for copper is 7.0ev but have no idea how it was set up. please help me set this problem up with equations or whatever i need to solve it
