This relation also holds for electrons which are not free, such as those occupying

states in an

**energy band**. Using E = huj, we can write the electron's velocity as _rfw _ 1 dE_ v - dk - h dk' 1 " ' Since the energy E of an electron in a solid does ...

Answer: 2 /is. 9-4 Metals, Insulators, Semiconductors We can use the band model

of metals to explain why some crystals are insulators and do not conduct an

electric current. Consider an
