Statistical Physics NAT Level – 2 - Question 2

During compression of a spring, the work done is 10 kJ and 2 kJ escaped to the surrounding as heat. The change in internal energy ∆U (in kJ) is


Detailed Solution for Statistical Physics NAT Level – 2 - Question 2

w = 10 kJ
q = –2 kJ
According to the first law of thermodynamics, ∆U = q + w
= –2 + 10 = 8 kJ

Statistical Physics NAT Level – 2 - Question 3

According to Fermi-Dirac statistic the number of particles in a phase cell is.


Detailed Solution for Statistical Physics NAT Level – 2 - Question 3

Systems following Fermi-Dirac statistics obey Pauli’s exclusion principal and each phase cell corresponding to one energy level which can be occupied by only 1 particle.
The correct answer is: 1

*Answer can only contain numeric values
Statistical Physics NAT Level – 2 - Question 4

Six distinguishable particles are distributed over three non-degenerate levels of energies 0, E and 2E. The total energy of the distribution for which the probability is a maximum is (in terms of E)?


Detailed Solution for Statistical Physics NAT Level – 2 - Question 4

Since, the levels are non-degenerate there is only one state associated with each energy.
Let the number of particles is 3 energy state be N1 , N2 and N3 respectively.
where N1 + N2 + N3 = 6
As the particles are distinguishable, the number of microstates i.e. the number of ways of choosing N1 , N2 and N3 particles from 6 particles is

W →  thermodynamic probability. It is maximum when N1 !N2 !N3 ! is a minimum
where N1 = N2 = N3 = 2
The corresponding total energy of distribution is

= 6E
The correct answer is: 6

Statistical Physics NAT Level – 2 - Question 5

Consider a radiation cavity of volume V at temperature T. The average number of photons in equilibrium is proportional to Tα , Find α?


Detailed Solution for Statistical Physics NAT Level – 2 - Question 5

For photons, B-E statistics is applicable
For photons,   

the density of states for photons between p and p + dp is

Since two independent direction of polarization

hv = dE
⇒ hdv = dE


Average number of photons 




The correct answer is: 3

Detailed Solution for Statistical Physics NAT Level – 2 - Question 6

The total number of cells upto energy level

Thus, the number of cells corresponding to energy interval E and E + dE is given by

The total number of cells between energy level 0 and EF at T = 0, are equal to the total number of particles i.e.

Thus,  
Efo is value of EF at T = 0.
The average kinetic energy of the particle at T = 0 is given by

The correct answer is: 0.6
