Textbook Problem

Conduction of an electric current is a general property associated with metals. How does the band theory for metallic bonding explain conductivity?

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The band theory for the metallic bonding in conductivity has to be explained.

Concept introduction:

Fermi level is the top of the collection of electron energy levels at absolute zero temperature.

Explanation

In metals, some electrons go and occupy the higher energy orbitals in the band of molecular orbitals when applying thermal energy. The electrons absorb the energy and promoted, two singly occupied levels, finally a negative electron goes to above the Fermi level and a positive hole are occupy below the Fermi level...
