Quiz 4 for Physics 176 Professor Greenside Thursday, March 24, 2011 This 20-minute quiz is closed book and no electronic devices are allowed on your table. Please write all answers on the supplementary blank pages so that you will have plenty of space and please write your name and problem number on each supplementary page. If your answer is not reasonably readable, you will lose credit. Unless stated otherwise, you need to explain or justify your reasoning to get full credit. Problems That Require Writing 1. (15 points) Consider a small system whose volume and energy can not change. This system is in thermodynamic equilibrium with a reservoir in such a way that the system can exchange molecules of a certain type with the reservoir. The number N s of molecules in the system (of the given type) therefore varies with the state s of the system. The reservoir has a fixed temperature T and a fixed chemical potential , and the system and reservoir together form a closed system so that the total number N of molecules of the given type is conserved....
