Electrical conductivity of a semiconductor

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Estimate the electrical conductivity, at 135°C, of silicon that has been doped with 3 x 1024 per meter cubed of aluminum atoms. Assume values for electron and hole mobilities of 0.03 and 0.007 m2/V-s, respectively.

2. Relevant equations


ne=number of free electrons
μe=electron mobility
nh=number of holes
μh=hole mobility

3. The attempt at a solution

So far I have this:

I don’t know how to find ne. Is it the same value of nh?
