Hi. I've just started a course on statistical physics and the first assignment is this:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

A system possesses 3 energy levels, [tex]E_1 = \epsilon,[/tex] [tex]E_2 = 2\epsilon[/tex] and [tex]E_3 = 3\epsilon[/tex]. The degeneracy of the levels are g(E1) = g(E3) = 1, g(E2) = 2. Find the heat capacity of the system.

I've forgotten all this thermodynamics stuff, so I would appreciate some hints :-)
