Physics 404 Problem Set #1 (80 points total) Due Sept 16, 2008 A note on how points are tallied in homework problems: Each problem is worth 10 points, unless otherwise noted. At the end of the semester we will drop 9 of your lowest scored problems, add up the points for all the remaining problems and adjust the score to have a maximum of 200 (note 20% of your total course score comes from homework) 1. (worth 20 points) We discussed in class the different ways of placing 4 colored balls in two partitions (with one divider) of equal volume v, and calculated the multiplicity functions for each arrangement (e.g., 1 ball on the left, 3 balls on the right, etc) . a) Now generalize this to three partitions (with two dividers). I, II, III. Show the different spatial arrangements with i) one ball ii) two distinguishable balls and iii) three distinguishable balls. (6 points) b) Further generalizing the case with 4 partitions (assuming each has the same volume v).

### 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.
