How to relate QHE to temperature

  1. Apr 28, 2015 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    The above forumla is all that is given and I don't understand how to incorporate temperature (or scattering time into it). I tried drude: $$\rho = \frac{m}{ne^{2}\tau } $$ where tau is the scattering time, but then how to bring in temperature?

    The question seems so abstract and we havent been given a formula to solve it. Could anyone point me in the right direction please?
