Textbook Problem

Consider the following energy levels, each capable of holding two particles:

Chapter 17, Problem 29E, Consider the following energy levels, each capable of holding two particles: Draw all the possible

Draw all the possible arrangements of the two identical particles (represented by X) in the three energy levels. What total energy is most likely, that is, occurs the greatest number of times? Assume that the particles are indistinguishable from each other.

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation: The energy levels of two identical particles are given. The possible arrangements of these particles are to be drawn. Total energy most likely, that is, occurs the greatest number of times is to be calculated.

Concept introduction: Molecules can be arranged in different configurations. The configuration that gives the particular arrangement is known as microstates.

Explanation

Explanation

The possible arrangements of the two identical particles (represented by X) in the three energy levels is as follows,

Arrangement Number I II III IV V VI
E=2kJ     XX   X X
E=1kJ   XX   X   X
E=0kJ XX     X X  
Total energy 0
