Out[24]= 306.768 Problem 4. (1) entropy for three states First, the partition function plotted vs ! is as follows. At high temperatures (small ! ), it reaches 3, since all three states are accessible whereas at large ! (low temperatures) it approaches 1. When two states are closer two each other (f=0.01 or 0.99), their behaviors are interesting. Q increases from 2->3 at higher temperatures when f=0.01 since two lower states are accessible already whereas Q increases from 1->3 when f=0.99 since top two states are accessible only already whereas Q increases from 1->3 when f=0....
