Unformatted text preview: is the independent variable). Use it to nd the grand potential G and the number N , as functions of T, . Verify that N ( T, ) and ( T,N ) are inverse functions. c) For a quadratic potential, b = 2, add an external potentialfX , where X = i q x i , corresponding to a constant force f in the x direction. Evaluate the Gibbs partition function Z , and the Gibbs potential G ( T,N,f ). Evaluate X ( T,N,f ) by dierentiating. 1...
