Unformatted text preview: Updates and Corrections to Statistical and Thermal Physics by Harvey Gould and Jan Tobochnik Page Correction xvi We inadvertently omitted Irwin Oppenheim in our acknowledgements of people who read individual chapters. xvii Ventura Rodriquez should be Ventura Rodriguez. 57 Line immediately after Eq. (2.57) “... work done on the gas is- W and ...” should be “ ... work done on the gas is- Q and ....” 79 Remove the phrase “and the fundamental thermodynamic relation (2.128)” in the sentence before Eq. (2.140). 108 Equation (2.257) should read κ- κ S = TV C P α 2 . (2.257) 110 The Kuhn reference should read Thomas S. Kuhn, “Energy conservation as an example ....” 128 Equation (3.47a) should read dS dP 1 =- h ln P 1 + 1- 2[ln(3- f- 2 P 1 ) + 1] + [ln( f- 2 + P 1 ) + 1] i (3.47a)) 128 Equation (3.48) should read P ( A ) = P ( A | B ) P ( B ) + P ( A | - B ) P (- B ) . (3.48) 139 In the first line of the text there are W N- 1 ( n- 1 ,n ) ways of reaching the first case and W N...
