How can I calculate the number of free electrons that are released from a
metal cathode during thermionic emission?
Tungsten, for example, will emit a certain amount of free electrons when
heated. I'm assuming that the number of electrons released is
proportionate to the amount of heat applied. How can I determine how many
free electrons are generated at any given temperature?
