Unformatted text preview: = n+1 (ii) The multiplicity is always 1 2. You bring into thermal contact systems A and B at energies E=nε each. What will be the equilibrium energies of A and B. What will be the final equilibrium temperature of the two systems? If you prefer dealing with actual numbers, consider n=1, ε =1 (Hint: For a discrete function y(x) you may use, dy/dx = [y n+1y n ]/[x n+1x n ]) Let the energy redistribute such that A has n A ε n A +n B = 2n W of the combined system is n A = (n A +1).1 This will be a maximum when n A = 2n and n B =0 So E A = 2nε and E B = 0 T B = ΔE/ΔS = Δε/0 = ∞ T A = εS(2nε+ε) – S(2nε) = εln(2n+1+1)ln(2n+1) = εln(2n+2)/(2n+1)...
