1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data For an einstein solid with four oscillators and two unites of energy, represent each possible microstate as a series of dots and vertical lines. 2. Relevant equations no relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution I won't list all my microstates, just a couple of microstates . N=4 q=2 microstate: 2 0 0 0 => ..||| microstate: 1 0 1 0 => .|.| microstate: 0 2 0 0 ==> |..|| did I represent the microstates, which were suppose to be represented by dots and vertical lines correctly
Your doing it correctly. Just make sure you get all possible combinations. In other words, your table should have [tex]\Omega(4, 2) = \left(\stackrel{5}{2}\right)[/tex] rows, all with different configurations.
