Homework #6 — PHYS 603 — Spring 2008 Deadline: Thursday, April 3, 2008, in class Professor Victor Yakovenko Office: 2115 Physics Web page: http://www2.physics.umd.edu/ ~ yakovenk/teaching/ Textbook: Silvio Salinas, Introduction to Statistical Physics Springer, 2001, ISBN 0-387-95119-9 Do not forget to write your name and the homework number! Each problem is worth 10 points. Ch. 6 The Classical Gas in the Canonical Formalism 1. Problem 6.1. Relativistic gas with ε = cp . 2. Problem 6.2. Unharmonic oscillators with U x n . 3. Problem 6.3. Diatomic molecules with the elastic energy r 2 12 or | r 12 - r 0 | . The answer to the second part of the problem at http://fge.if.usp.br/ ~ ssalinas/ exchap06/ seems to have incorrect dimensionality. Be sure to check the dimensionality

Unformatted text preview: of your answer. 4. Problem 6.4. 3D rigid rotators, dipoles in an electric eld. If the rotators have a magnetic dipole moment instead of an electric dipole moment, and a magnetic eld is applied instead of an electric eld, does your answer give the Curie law for the magnetic susceptibility? Compare with Eq. (5.39) for the Curie law. 5. Problem 6.5. Polarizable molecules in an electric eld. Does the electric susceptibility in this problem follow the Curie law? Explain the physical origin of the dierence in the results of the last two problems. March 26, 2008...
