Positional disorder?

Postby ZoeHahn1J » Sun Jan 28, 2018 10:11 pm

What's the difference between positional disorder and degeneracy? Is it the same thing?

Potential disorder is another way of saying the amount of potential different states of a system, so it is the same as degeneracy. This shouldn't be important though since Dr. Lavelle wants to avoid using the term disorder altogether.
