- Homework Statement
- If we compress H2 gas to the point at which the average inter-molecular distance is equal to the

distance between H atoms within an H2 molecule (that is,<r> = R0 ), then electrons will begin forminga distinct Fermi gas – a metal-like electron “sea” - surrounding H atoms. Find the pressure at whichthis condition occurs.

The calculated n =N/V= 2.71*10^25m^-3

<r> = 3.33nm

T=300K

I am currently stuck on part c

- Relevant Equations
- n = N/V = pNa/M

<r> = n^(-1/3)

R0 = 0.074nm
