Question #8777

1. A sample of germanium shows no Hall effect. If the mobility of electrons in germanium is 3500 cm cube/v. see and that of holes is 1400cm cube/v. see. What fraction of the current in the sample is carried by the electrons?

Expert's answer

From the data given below calculate the value of first and third quartiles, second and ninth deciles and forty-fifth and fifty-seventh percentiles.

161-167 79 79

167-173 92 171

173-179 60 231

179-185 22 253

185-191 5 258

191-197 2 260

Total 260

Since there are 260 total, the 1st quartile is at 260/4 = 65,

the 3rd quartiile is 3*65 = 195,

the 2nd decile is at 3*21 = 63,

the 9th decile is at 9*21 = 189,

the 45th percentile is at 45*210/100 = 94.5,

and the 57th percentile is at 57*210/100 = 119.7.

Using the last column, 65 is less than 79, so it is 161-167;

195 is greater than 171, but less than 231, so it is 173-179;

63 is less than 79, so it is 161-167,

189 is greater than 171, but less than 231, so it is 173-179;

94.5 is greater than 79, but less than 171, so it is 167-173; and

119.7 greater than 79 but less than 171, so it is is 167-173.
