**1. Homework Statement**

Suppose we have a system of particles and we wish to calculate the thermodynamic variables (e.g. energy, entropy, pressure, etc.)

Will the result depend on whether we consider the microcanonical or the canonical ensemble?

I want to calculate the partition function to get the TD variables, but the way in which we need to calculate the partition function depends on the ensemble that we consider.
