What is Thomas coefficient and Seebeck coefficient?

Expert Answer:

Dear student
Pls. post each question individually.

The thermopower, or thermoelectric power (also called the Seebeck coefficient) of a material is a measure of the magnitude of an induced thermoelectric voltage in response to a temperature difference across that material.[1] The thermopower has units of volts per kelvin (V/K),[1] although it is more often given in microvolts per kelvin (μV/K).

 Hope this helps.
