Robert Szoszkiewicz, PHYS 664, HW # 3, Sept 23, 2009 DUE: on (or before) 10:20 am, Sept 30, 2009. 1. Manipulations of thermodynamic variables (2). (a) Show (e.g., using Maxwell relations) that: ( ∂τ ∂p ) V ( ∂p ∂V ) τ ( ∂V ∂τ ) p = - 1 τ is statistical temperature, p is the mean pressure, V is the volume. (b) Show that for any function F ( x,y,z ) = 0, we get: ( ∂z ∂x ) y ( ∂x ∂y ) z ( ∂y ∂z ) x = - 1 2. Number of thermal photons.
