    Boltzmann equation/ Statistical Mechanics

    Makes sense...thank you. It's been a long week. Nice to finally know where that log came from.

    the total entropy s=s1+s2 and the multiplicity w=w1*w2. Is the log just out of convenience then?

    Boltzmann equation/ Statistical Mechanics

    Homework Statement If we assume entropy is a function of the multiplicity, \Omega, (S=k*f(\Omega)) show that that function f(\Omega) is ln(\Omega). Homework Equations The Attempt at a Solution \Omega can be written as N!/ni!. By using stirling's approximation, this becomes \Omega=...
