Problem 15.1


Decrease Particles in Box
Increase Particles in Box

Please wait for the animation to completely load.

This animation shows a systems of 11 boxes, labeled 0 to 10, of energy equivalent to the box label.  Each box has 40 states and there are 100 particles to distribute among the boxes. (B-E is Bose-Einstein for bosons, F-D is Fermi-Dirac for fermions, and M-B is Maxwell-Boltzmann for a classical system).  The equilibrium distribution is shown.  What is the average energy per particle?  Restart.
