(4 oscillators correspond to one-and-a-third atoms, so this doesn't make physical sense.) 10 10 2. 2/2 points | 1/4 submissions Use the formula below to calculate the number of ways to arrange 5 quanta among 4 one-dimensional oscillators. 56 56 (q + N - 1)! q!(N - 1)! 3. 2/2 points | 2/4 submissions A carbon nanoparticle (very small particle) contains 9000 carbon atoms. According to the Einstein model of a solid, how many oscillators are in
