Thermodynamics: Gas Terms and Formulae Terms Bose Gas - A Bose gas is a gas consisting of bosons. Boson - A boson is a particle with integer spin. Classical Regime - The classical regime is that in which gases behave classically, namely without demonstrating bosonic or fermionic character. We can define the regime as f 1 or n n Q . Degenerate - Term used for a gas when it is too dense to be considered as being in the classical regime, i.e. n > n Q . Distribution Function - The distribution function, f , gives the average number of particles in an orbital. Einstein Condensation - Also known as bose condensation, the effect of boson crowding in the ground orbital. Einstein Condensation Temperature - The temperature below which Einstein Condensation significantly occurs, given by τ âÉá . Equipartition - A classical shortcut that assigns to one particle energy of τ per degree of freedom in the classical expression of its energy. Fermi Energy
