Unformatted text preview: particles of energy 400kB each. What can you say about the two energy levels (In other words, what does the energy distribution of the system look like)? (3) Solution: If one applied Boltzmann’s distribution one would find that .367 2 1 1 300 / ) 100 400 ( / ) 2 1 ( = = = =e e e N N k k k kT U U However we are given 735 . 1000 735 2 1 = = N N … twice more than what the energy levels alone would dictate. This implies that the position multiplicity at 400k B is twice that at 100k B . The system would (in a simple case) look like ___367___ ___367___ 400k B ___1000___ 100k B...
