The energy of vacancy formation in palladium (Pd) is 1.5 eV. At 888C there is one vacancy for every million (106) atom sites. What temperature would be necessary to achieve a vacancy fraction of one for every thousand (10 3) atom sites?
Express your answer in degrees C:
Correction, it's right. WHY it is right though, that is the question. After all, who would want to know how to do a similar question where internet access is disallowed? Anyone who hasn't just stumbled onto the question, or already knows how, that's who.
