(b) Substitute the Boltzmann distribution in the previous result to show that U S=?+Nkan. (c) Using the expressions derived in the text for U and Y; prove that 0/1" 6’” — 1 S=Nk — ln(1 — 6—9/7) , where 0 = hv/ k. Examine the behavior of S as T approaches zero. 15-3 Consider 1000 diatomic molecules at a temperature Gym/2. (a) Find the number in each of the three lowest vibrational states. (b) Find the vibrational energy of the system. J54 (a) In the low temperature approximation of Section 15-4, show that the Helmholtz function for rotation is PM = —3NkTe-20wﬂ. (b) Use the reciprocal relation S = — (BF/6T)V to find the entropy Srot in the same approximation. Note that S —> 0 as T—>O, in agreement with the third law. 15-5 As an alternative evaluation of Zrot to that given in the text, assume that for T >> 9m: the numbers I in the sum of Equation (15.13) are large compared with unity and replace the summation by integration with respect to I. Show that Zrot = T/erot - £45 Use the data of Table 15.1 to determine re, the equilibrium distance between the nuclei, for (a) an H2 molecule; (h) a CO molecule.

What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
