ME 501 Example Problem: Corrected Maxwell-Boltzmann Statistics Consider an assembly of N = 10 5 particles distributed over the five available energy levels, j = 0, 1, 2, 3, and 4 shown in the diagram. The energy of each level (in units of Joules) is given by j = j (100 K) k B , and the degeneracy of each level is
