so they are ALL in the low Energy Level. If there is a known amount of Energy (or a known average amount per boson) then there must be enough bosons occupying the upper level so that their Energies add up to the total known amount.

In many realistic situations, information about the average Energy per object is given in terms of "Temperature", related via kinetic theory.

Thank you for your help. Let me make it clear, the occupancy of any energy level is decided by the total energy of the system, so my question cannot be answered only if we add an additional energy parameter, right?lightgrav said:

For T>0, you may have to use the formulars given by the BE statistics to find the average occupancy of the zero level. See what connection it has to the total number of particles. Following site might be helpful.
