Homework Help: Multiplicity of a gas

  1. Feb 9, 2004 #1
    Consider an ideal monatomic gas that lives in a two-dimensional universe ("flatland"), occupying an area A instead of a volume V. Find a formula for the multiplicity of this gas.


    I arrived at this formula. Is it correct?:

    1/N!(A^N/h3N)(pi^3N/2/3N/2)!(sqrt(2mU))^3N

    its wrong:

    it should be
    [(1/N!)*((A*pi)^N)*(2MU)^N]/ (h^2N)*(N!)
