Chapter 22 651 Section 22.8 Entropy on a Microscopic Scale P22.49 (a) A 12 can only be obtained one way 6 6 + (b) A 7 can be obtained six ways: 6 1 + , 5 2 + , 4 3 + , 3 4 + , 2 5 + , 1 6 + P22.50 (a) The table is shown below. On the basis of the table, the most probable result of a toss is 2 heads and 2 tails . (b) The most ordered state is the least likely state. Thus, on the basis of the table this is either all heads or all tails . (c) The most disordered is the most likely state. Thus, this is 2 heads and 2 tails . Result Possible Combinations Total All heads HHHH 1 3H, 1T THHH, HTHH, HHTH, HHHT 4 2H, 2T TTHH, THTH, THHT, HTTH, HTHT, HHTT 6 1H, 3T HTTT, THTT, TTHT, TTTH 4 All tails TTTT 1 P22.51 (a) Result Possible Combinations Total All red RRR 1 2R, 1G RRG, RGR, GRR 3 1R, 2G RGG, GRG, GGR 3 All green GGG 1 (b) Result Possible Combinations Total All red RRRRR
