Ch. 5 Statistical Justification of the Second Law 1. Problem 5.1, Adiabatic expansion of a cubic box. Write down the quantum energy levels in a cubic box. Assuming that initially the en- ergy levels are populated with a temperature T , find out how the temperature changes when the box is adiabatically expanded preserving its proportions. Show that a rela- tionship between T and volume V is in agreement with Eq. (1.38) for monoatomic gas with c v = 3 / 2. Problem 5.6, Asymmetric expansion of a rectangular box. 2.
