Unformatted text preview: N is given by eq. (20) or eq. (21) oF Pathria, Sec. (6.3). Alternatively, For Fermions, you can use the last Formula on p. 16 oF my notes, and For bosons, youcan use an analogous Formula. Now consider the “classical limit” in which the occupation number oF any given state is much smaller than 1. In this limit, frst obtain an expression For the occupation number as a Function oF energy. Show that this expression is the same as the Maxwell-Boltzmann Formula. Also, obtain an expression For μ in terms oF N , V , and T , valid For both Fermions and bosons, in this limit. Show that this expression is the same as that obtained last quarter From treatment oF the classical ideal gas. 1...
