Degeneracy for quiz 1

Postby Izzy Ick 4B » Sun Jan 24, 2016 11:57 pm

What do we need to know about degeneracy for the first quiz? Just to calculate total degeneracy (w1 x w2)? Will will be ever asked to find a value?

That is enough. Even if you are asked to find a value, you can calculate the individual degeneracies and take the natural log of their product to get the answer.
