The Hall coefficient and electrical resistivity were measured for an oriented cadmium sulfide crystal with C-axis parallel to the magnetic field. Values were taken in the temperature range from I5 degee K to 325K. From these data, charge carrier concentration and Hall mobility were calculated throughout the temperature range. Magnetic field dependence of Hall coefficient and resistivity were also measured. The material displayed what appeared to be ohmic magnetoresistivity in the quantum oscillatory region above 70 kilogauss. In addition, the optical absorption edge was determined and the energy gap inferred.
