Homework Help: Microcanonical ensemble with four spin 1

  1. Dec 1, 2007 #1
    Four spin1 particles are rigidly fixed at four corners of a square.
    1. What will be the entropy.
    2. A field is now applied that produces an energy difference between m=0 and m=1,-1 states of each of each particle. Take m=0 as the ground state and find the free energy at temperature T.
    3. Find the condition for which result from (1) matches with that of (2).
