Homework Help: Not a clue Number of oscillators.

  1. Nov 15, 2007 #1
    A carbon nanoparticle (very small particle) contains 8000 carbon atoms. According to the Einstein model of a solid, how many oscillators are in this block?


    I have no idea where to even begin, can someone point me in the right direction?
