Kittel problem 8.1

  1. Mar 8, 2008 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    This question refers to Kittel's Solid-state physics book.

    I think it is obvious that we should use equations (51) and (52) here but I am very confused about this problem because Kittel never says what the impurity is and what the impurity is in.
    Can someone fill in the blanks:
    (a) Calculate the donor ionization energy of _____ in _______ .

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
