    Calculate the Fermi energies Eg (in units of eV) and the corresponding Fermi temperatures TF for:
    a. Liquid 3He (density 0.0823 g cm^-3)
    b. Electrons in aluminium (valence 3, density 2.7 g cm^-3)
    c. Neutrons in the nucleus of 16O. The radius r of a nucleus scales roughly as r = 1.2 A ^1/3 x 10^-15m where A is the atomic mass number.
