I was studying statistical mechanics and found some concept that are difficult for me to grasp. Any kind of help will be highly appreciated.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

My questions are :

1. In equilibrium which quantity should be maximized? Is it the number of Microstate or the way that a particular Microstate is achieved?

2. What the 'State' means in the 'Density Of States'? Is it the sets of (n_{x}, n_{y}, n_{z}) for a particular 'n' in the energy of the particle in a 3 D box?

3. If Maxwell Boltzmann Statistics is for classical particles then why we are assuming discrete energy levels as well as quantum states in those energy levels to prove the distribution?

Thank you
