Introduction to Statistical Thermodynamics (Recall)

2
2 Basic assumption Each individual microstate is equally probable …, but there are not many microstates that give these extreme results If the number of particles is large (>10) these functions are sharply peaked

3
3 Consistent with classical thermodynamics? Systems 1 and 2 are weakly coupled such that they can exchange energy. What will be E 1 ?
