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

A silicon sample is doped with 5.0 X 10^19 donor atoms/cm^3 and 5.0 X 10^19 acceptor atmos/cm^3

a)What is its resistivity?

b)Is this an insulator, conductor or semiconductor?

c)Is this intrinsic material?

2. Relevant equations

No clue.. this is where I need help

3. The attempt at a solution

The question completely threw me off.

I am assuming I can answer b and c once I calculate part a, but I have no clue which equation to use. Can anybody start me off?
