Which is having more energy – Valence band or Conduction Band?

I want to know which band is having more energy? valence or conduction band?

Asked Sneha Sarkar

 

Answer:

The energy corresponding to conductionband is more than that of valence band.

The valence band is simply the outermost electron orbital of an atom of any specific material that electrons actually occupy.

The conduction band is the band of electron orbitals that electrons can jump up into from the valence band when excited.
