[18.83] a) We interpret probability as the frequency of occurance. For a discrete system, p n N i i = where n i is the number of particles in the i th state, so n Np i i = . For the continuous system, the probability of finding the particle with a speedbetween v and v + dv is f(v) dv. Hence, the number of particles in this range is dn i = N f(v) dv. Summing $ $ N N f v dv v v v = + % ( ) . b) v kT m mp = 2 f v m kT v e m kT kT m e e v mp mp mv kT mp mp ( ) . / / = ( ) = ( ) ( ) = " 4
