Conduction Band MCQs with Answers

Conduction Band MCQs

We know that the electrons in an atom are present in different energy level. For stability of structure the electrons has to split in different levels, these levels are termed as Energy Bands. There are two types of energy bands

1) Conduction band 2) Valance band

Valence Band: Energy levels of valence electrons are known as the valence band. It is completely/highest filled energy band. Electron in this level possesses lowest energy.

Conduction Band: Almost empty energy level is known as conduction band. But electron from valance band can jump in to this band so as to possess higher energies. Electrons present in this band can contribute for flow of current. It has conducting electrons resulting in the flow of current. The conduction band possesses high energy level and is generally empty.

The gap between adjacent bands representing a range of energies that possess no electron is called a Forbidden gap.
