When calculating whether Boltzmann, Bose-Einstein, or Fermi Dirac should be used there is an equation for Degeneracy Parameter A which can be initially used.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Degeneracy Parameter A = (N/V) (h^2 / 2 TT m k T)^(3/2)

What is represented by N and V and k?

Is N the Number Density, V Volume and k Boltzmann constant?

Thank you.
