Because only two electrons can occupy each level, the energy of an electron occupying a low energy level cannot be increased unless it is given sufficient energy to allow it to jump to an empty level at Atoms and atomic arrangements 15 the top of the band. The energy4 width of these bands is commonly about 5 or 6 eV and, therefore, considerable energy would have to be put into the metal to excite a low-lying electron. Such energies do not occur at normal temperatures, and only those electrons with energies close to that of the top of the band (known as the Fermi level and surface) can be excited, and therefore only a small number of the free electrons in a metal can take part in thermal processes.

Such energies do not occur at normal temperatures, and only those electrons with energies close to that of the top of the band (known as the Fermi level and surface) can be excited, and therefore only a small number of the free electrons in a metal can take part in thermal processes. The energy of the Fermi level EF depends on the number of electrons N per unit volume V, and is given by (h2/8m)(3N /πV )2/3 . The electron in a metallic band must be thought of as moving continuously through the structure with an energy depending on which level of the band it occupies.

We will first consider the general chemical features of each type of bonding; in later sections we will examine the resultant disposition of the assembled atoms (ions) in three-dimensional space. 2). In general, they have a few valence electrons, outside the outermost closed shell, which are relatively easy to detach. 3a). Application of an electric potential gradient will cause the ‘gas’ to drift through the structure with little hindrance, thus explaining the outstanding electrical conductivity of the metallic state.
