Problem solved.

The boiling point of a certain liquid is 95

and 105

height of mountain.

It's Q4 of chapter 15 in Statistical Mechanics by S.K. Ma

it should be the Clausius-Clapeyron Equation

I tried to use the canonical partition function to derive the pressure in terms of height, and then plug it into the Clausius-Clapeyron Equation, but it is not successful.

## Homework Statement

The boiling point of a certain liquid is 95

^{O}C at the top of a mountainand 105

^{O}C at the bottom. Its latent heat is 1000 cal/mole. Calculate theheight of mountain.
