Updates and Corrections to the Solutions to Statistical and Thermal Physics by Harvey Gould and Jan Tobochnik Problem Correction 2.51 Equation (2.54b) should be = (2)(8 . 314)(300) ln 10 = 11486 J (2.54b) 3.38(a) The limits of the integral in Eq. (S3.47)should be - 1 and 1: x 2 = 1 2 Z 1 - 1 x 2 dx = 1 3 . (S3.47) 3.42 The value for C 4 in Eq. (S3.61) should be C 4 = a 4 5 - 0 - 3 a 2 3 2 + 0 - 0 = - 2 15 a 4 . (3.61) 4.4(b) Equation (S4.3) should be Ω( N = 4 , E = 6) = 9! 6! 3! = (9)(8)(7) (3)(2) = 84 . (S4.3) 4.11 Equation (S4.10) is missing a parenthesis and should be Γ qm ( E ) = 2 L h h 2 m 144 h 2 8 mL 2 i 1 / 2 = 12 . (S4.10) 4.29(c) N = 30 should be N = 40. 4.29(d) N = 30 should be N = 40. 4.30 Equation (S4.34) should read E d = - ∂β ln Z 0 e - βE d dE d = - ∂β ln β - 1 = 1 β = kT. (S4.34) 4.38(a) Equation (S4.40) should be Ω B = 16! 9! 7! = 11440 . (S4.40) So the initial total number of microstates is Ω = Ω A Ω B = 45760. 4.42 Equation (S4.52a) is missing parentheses and should read

Unformatted text preview: 2 a V ² (S4.52a) 4.45 The pressure should be P = kT∂ ln Z/∂V = kT/V . 4.49 The problem statement refers to microstates 1 and 2, but the solution refers to microstates 0 and 1. Hence P → P 1 and P 1 → P 2 in the solution. 5.6(c) Equation (S5.15d) is missing ln in ﬁrst term in the brackets. Equation (S5.15e) is missing a factor of Nk outside the brackets. In Eq. (S5.15f) upper case K should be lower case. Also the ﬁrst exponential in the second parentheses within the brackets has the wrong sign in the exponent. 6.19 The reference to Eq. (6.119c) just before Eq. (S6.58) should be Eq. (6.86). In Eq. (S6.61) ± k should be replaced by ± . Also du is missing a factor of d± . Updated 6 December 2010 ....

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
