In the n(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); _{i}=[itex]\sqrt{Nc*Nv}*e^{\frac{-Eg}{2kT}}[/itex] formula for intrinsic carrier concentration, what values N_{c},N_{v}and E_{g}take in relation to temperature? Are they each calculated for that temperature or, for example, is E_{g}always taken for 300K? My guess is they should all be calculated for given temperature but that would mean some solved problems I got my hands on are wrong. In them, E_{g}is always taken to be 1.196eV.
