10 galat hai pakka
relation hota hai
mobility=(charge/mass of electron)* time of exitation to recombination
so, it depends on weight not on energy
plz check it

@ vikas jaiswal,
hole is nothing but equivalent to electron(in mass and charge) but it is +vely charge. So here u should not think about the mass. The only thing here matters for mobility is that electrons are free in conduction band whereas holes are tightly bound in Valence band. The ans is correct my dear.

woo....... what a good questions
it is really good approach to understand the topics
thoroughly specially about semiconductor basics.

nice, the mobility of e- s is greater than holes because of less mass of an e-, pls check it

Ramesh Sinha on 2011-08-04 07:30:42 wrote,

electrons have less effective size than that of holes(which actually are not real)...formula says
m(mobility)=drift velocity/electric field=et/m where t is relaxation time..
so mobility is inversely proportional to mass
hence e has more mobility.

plz correct it or send ur argument . thanks

i think question no 10 is wrong,because it depends on weight of electron.

quistion no. 10....
mobilty of an carrier depends upon the its mass..electrons are lighter than result the answer suggested is not correct...any body coment plz..
