While trying to count states, we invoke the classical limit and h Can we obtain Q assuming classical behavior for the H ? What do you expect to be “different” between the 2 answers? So far, we “solved” the Q.M. problem and then count all states to get the partition function Q. While trying to count states, we invoke the classical limit and h Can we obtain Q assuming classical behavior for the H ? We can obtain the states energies by solving the classical Hamiltonian equations h& = =  & & where j=1,2,...3N j j q p q j j H H p We count the states by analogy to the quantum treatment… εβ εβ 647 48 678 QM treatment classical treatment e e ( 29 β class q e dpdq p,q H ( 29 = + 2 2 1 conjugated pair p,q 1 Harmonic Oscillator: , 2 2 osc p p q k q m H ( 29 β vib,class , q p q e dp dq H + = 2 2 1 2 2 osc p k q mkT kT e dp dq 2 2 1 2 2 vib,class q osc p k q mkT kT e dp e dq ( 29 π π = 1 2 1 2 vib,class 2 q . 2 osc kT const mkT k π = 6 1 2 2 we use 1 2 bx e dx b π = 1 2 . 2 osc m const kT k ν = vib,class q . kT const πν = osc where we used 1 2 m k ν = & vib,QM q kT h = 1 const h ( 29 + + = 2 2 2 Translation kinetic energy: , 2 x y z p p p p q m H ( 29 β trans,class 3 conjugated variables pairs , q x y z x y z p q e dp dp dp dq dq dq H + + = 2 2 2 2 trans,class q ....
