In calculating entropy in micro canonical ensemble we use KlnW where W is the no. of accessible micro states to the system , now when we move on to canonical ensemble ,we calculate the partition function and from there derive the thermodynamics of the system , and divide it by factor of h to make it dimensionless , now if one is asked to calculate phase space volume , it means we calculate the partition function by integration of exp[B(H(q,p))] dqdp and not dividing this by h . Is this correct ??(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
