Homework Help: Bose condense an initially classic gas

  1. Apr 27, 2009 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Consider a gas of 10^6 bosonic atoms at fixed temperature. Can you make an initially classical gas Bose condense by only changing the volume keeping the temperature fixed? Why?

    2. Relevant equations

    condensation temperature of a free Bose gas equation: T = 0.527(h^2/2*Pi*m)(N/V)^(2/3)

    3. The attempt at a solution

    This is the only equation I have found that could be helpful. Here is my logic...since that equation only depends on V and not T...the answer is yes...? Sorry...really stuck here. :confused:
