(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Consider the interation of two einstein solids, A and B. A has NA particles and qA units of energy and B has NB and qB units of energy. find the most probable values of qA and qB when equilibrium is reached.

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I set up the multiplicity formula (omega)=(qA+qB+NA+NB-1)!/(qA+qB)!(NA+NB-1)!

but is there something i have to do to account for equilibrium in some way? do i have to differentiate something to get the maximum? I don't know how to even set up the probability or if it would even make any sense without any numbers
