For this question I'm to calculate the molar Gibbs function, G-G_{0}, at 2000K for BSi given that the bond distance is 1.905[itex]A^{\circ}[/itex], [itex]ω^{~}[/itex] = 772cm^{-1}, the ground electronic state has a degeneracy of 4, and the lowest energy excited electronic state, 8000cm^{-1}above the ground state, also has a degeneracy of 4.

2. Relevant equations

Gibbs Function G = H-TS ............ (1)

where H is enthalpy, T is temperature and S is entropy.

G-G_{0}= -kT ln(Z) + nRT ............ (2)

3. The attempt at a solution

So since it's molar i'm assuming there's going to be a volume term somewhere (in calculating partition function) and V=0.02446m^{3}.

Do I need to work out all the individual contributions to the partition function, Z, then just simply plug them into (2) ?
