# Calculating entropy change using the Boltzmann hypothesisDENNISTwo nitro (NO,groups are chemically bonded to a patch of surface. They can't move to another location on the surface, but theycan rotate (see sketch at right).It turns out that the amount of rotational kinetic energy each NO, group can have is required to be a multiple of e, where-24J. In other words, each N0, group could have & of rotational kinetic energy, or 28, or 38, and so forth8=1.0 x 10but itcannot have just any old amount of rotational kinetic energy.Two rotating NO, groupsOSuppose the total rotational kinetic energy in this system is initially known to be 1008. Then, some heat is removed from thebonded to a surface.system, and the total rotational kinetic energy falls to 758.
