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)ln10 = 11486J (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 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 ²i 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 T = 2 3 Nk ± E + N

Unformatted text preview: 2 a V (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 rst 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 rst 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 ....
