Bose gas of sodium

    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    3: When the temperature is increased slightly above T = 0, it is self-consistent to assume to that the chemical potential stays \mu(T) = 0, as long as there is a macroscopic number N0 oscillators in the ground state (You should not prove this!). The N atoms in the system are distributed with N0 in the ground state and the residual N-N0 particles in the excited state. Show that

    When the temperature is increased, N0 gradually disappears. Show that this happens at a critical temperature T_C and calculate the value of T_C. Also, show that N0 diminishes according to the law
