Chapter 17, Problem 17.17E
Textbook Problem

What is the most probable distribution of a three-particle system having four possible energy levels, as shown in Figure 17.5, where the system has a total of 5 energy units? Are the thermodynamic properties of such a system determined solely by considering the most probable distribution? Why or why not?
