i heard that we are using law of consveration of momentum in flow of electrons and holes .. why and where do we are using it...
thx

we have 2 main conservation equations to consider while solving problems which are the energy conservation & momentum conservation.
for example:
for transmission of electron from Ec (conduction band) to the Ev (valence band) this conservation (momentum conservation) causes that some materials emit light (photon) (direct materials :GaAs) and some others do not emit light or photon and this energy cause the lattice vibration (phonon).
for more information see

or semiconductor fundamentals books
