- Homework Statement
- I am trying to determine the density of states using phase space volume. In my solution I have managed to determine the constants and the variation of energy dE, so the term I cant figure out is the integral of the coordinates. According to my lectures and the example I did of N classical harmonic oscillators (2 dimensional), I can determine the integral as the area of 3 dimensional hypersphere, however when I apply the formula I have E^(5/2) and the exercise I am trying to solve says that the final result is D(E)=aE^(2), a is a constant. I dont know what I am doing wrong.

- Relevant Equations
- D(E) = dΩ/dE
