All observable physical properties such as energy and the number of particles are independent of time. Each quantum state has a definite energy. States with identical energies are know to be on the same energy level. The multiplicity or degeneracy of an energy level is the number of quantum states with very nearly the same energy. It is the number of states that is important in thermal physics, not the number of energy levels. We will deal a lot with summing the number of quantum states. To take account of the two orientations we should double the values of the multiplicities show for the hydrogen atom. \\* nx ny nz multiplicity \\* 1 1 1 --- 1 \\* 2 1 1 --- 3\\* 2 2 1 --- 3\\* 3 1 1 --- 3\\* 2 2 2 --- 1\\* 3 2 1 --- 6\\* 3 2 2 --- 3\\* The energy of a system is the total energy of all particles, kinetic plus

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
