These problems require some effort. I have referred to some papers to find the missing data and provided the reference links to them as well.

I haven't calculated the numbers as once the concepts are clear and we come up with a well defined formula, all it takes is plugging in numbers in a calculator and coming up with an answer. I have left that much portion to the student.

You can use the following two formulate to calculate the two quantities.

a) V fb = Phi (metal-semiconductor) - (Qf/Cox)

Cox = Eox/tox ...
