### Abstract

A geometrical probability measure was proposed to calculate the effective conduction electron mean free path. It was found that the palsmon widths determined from the mean free path were consistent with exact quantum mechanical widths. The mean free path formula was used to evaluate size and shape dependent dielectric functions.
