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

Having some trouble with the following equation, I'm not sure what each term represents.

The problem I have is does c,v have something to do with conduction and valence? But what is N and m? And what does it mean when terms are seperated by a comma?

2. Relevant equations

Nc,v = 2 ((2[tex]\pi[/tex]mc,vKT)/(h^2))

3. The attempt at a solution

From what I gather;

K=Boltmann's constant

T=Temperature

h=Planck's constant

Nc,v=?????????

mc,v=?????????
