Total energy of electron due to temperature

  1. Dec 6, 2014 #1
    Sorry if this is a totally idiotic question, but I was wondering how you can calculate the energy of an electron as the temperature of the surrounding environment is changed.

    Thanks so much!

    The energy of an individual electron? Which one?
    All you can find is an energy distribution, and this works via standard thermodynamics.
