Stuff for Thursday, May 26, 2011 Quiz #8 tomorrow on T4–T6. Final review sheets up front. Plan for next week (Monday is an OSU holiday) PS #17 due Tuesday; PS #18 due Friday 1094 Session 9 on Wednesday and quiz #9 on Friday All-day office hours MTW of finals week. 1094? Review session? T6, T7 stuff: Entropy S = k b ln Ω , so Ω = e S / k b ; S /∂ U 1 / T defines temperature Boltzmann factor: small quantum system in thermal contact with large heat reservoir = energy exchange at same T Prob
