. Consider a large number, N(0)
, molecules contained in a volume V
(0)
. Assume that
there is no correlation between the locations of the molecules (ideal gas). Do not
use the partition function in this problem.
(a) Calculate the probability P (V; N) that an arbitrary region of volume V contains
exactly N molecules.
(b) Calculate the average value N
and the standard deviation of N.
(c) Show that if both V and V
(0) V are large, the function P (V; N) assumes a
Gaussian form for N close to N
.
(d) Show that if both V V
(0)
and N N(0)
, the function P (V; N) assumes a
Poisson form.
