Avogadro's Number

Postby Max Hayama 4K » Wed Feb 06, 2019 10:40 am

Can anyone explain why we raised 2^avogadro's number during lecture? I didn't understand what this had to do with degeneracy/entropy.

I think the degeneracy of one mole equals 2 raised to avogadro's number because N equals the number of atoms/molecules.

Why is the degeneracy of one mole specifically equal to a base of 2 ( and then raised to Avogadro's number)? Is it just because for the specific example, there were 2 possibly orientations for the molecule?
