Question

One way to decide whether Maxwell-Boltzmann statistics are valid is to compare the de Broglie wavelength λ of a typical particle with the average interparticle spacing d. If λ << d then Maxwell-Boltzmann statistics are generally acceptable. (a) Using de Broglie’s relation λ = h/p, show that λ = h /(3mkT)^{1/2}
