Boltzmann Formula

Postby 205389184 » Tue Feb 11, 2020 10:16 pm

Will there be any problems on the midterm that requires us to use the Boltzmann formula and to know how to calculate for systems with different numbers of microstates?

Since it is listed on the learning outcomes outlines and some of the problems assigned include this topic, I would definitely try to make sure to know how to use it and how to solve problems that involve it.

Yes! S=kBlnW, and W= degeneracy aka (# of orientations/positions)^(# of atoms/ molecules).
