To take into account the density of states for an ideal gas, we first calculate it ignoring the spin. Then to take into account the spin for a system of electrons we put the number 2 for two spin directions. Why don't we do such this for a boson gas? For example if we have a gas of spin 1 particles, why don't we put the number 3 to consider three spin directions?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
