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

... Show that the entropy of the system in the microcanonical ensemble is

[tex] W = \frac{N!}{n!(N-n)!}3^n [/tex]

and obtain an expression for the temperature of the system. ...

N = number of molecules

n = number of molecules in orthostate

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

This question makes no sense, right? Because it says the entropy is W which is just a number, and entropy is in the units Joule/Kelvin
