The thermal conductivity of copper at room temperature is

The thermal conductivity of copper at room temperature is largely carried by the conduction e1etrorm, one per atom. The mean free path of the electrons at 300 K is of the order of 400 x 10–8 cm.
The conduction electron concentration is 13 x l022 per cm3. Estimate
(a) The electron contribution to the heat capacity;
(b) The electronic contribution to the thermal conductivity;
(c) The electrical conductivity. Specify units.
