1 Phys. 369, Fall 2009 Homework #5 Solutions 1. (12 points) The total magnetic moment (Schroeder’s “magnetization”) of the gas is given by Schroeder, eq. 3.22 tanh B MN kT μ ⎛⎞ = ⎜⎟ ⎝⎠ ( 1 ) Let’s estimate the ratio / B kT for a typical laboratory field of 1 Telsa: 24 23 J 2 9.27 10 1 T 2 T 0.0045 J 1.381 10 298 K K B B B kT kT ×× × == = ( 2 ) This shows that for laboratory fields and room temperature, we can safely assume /1 . Bk T ± For small x , ( ) ( ) () 11 sinh( ) tanh( ) cosh( ) 1 1 xx xe e x x e x x +−− ==≈ = ++ + ( 3 ) Therefore tanh B B N kT kT μμ =≈ ( 4 ) The magnetization (usual definition) of the sample is then 22 0 B N N B H V V kT VkT VkT = M ( 5 ) where we have assumed that the magnetic susceptibility m χ is going to be small, from which it follows that 0 . B H The magnetic susceptibility is defined by the relation m H = ( 6 ) Comparing eqs. (5) and (6) yields 2 2 2 00 0 2 4 B B m N NN VkT VkT V kT χμ = ( 7 ) The number of oxygen molecules per unit volume can be determined from the ideal gas law:
