Lecture 4: Partition Function and Thermodynamic Identity Thermal and Statistical Physics

    • Courses

Boltzmann Factor, Partition Function and how to calculate everything else from it. Live near lakes because they have a high heat capacity. Energy and Heat Capacity of a two state system, Definition of a reversible process, Definition of pressure, The Thermodynamic Identity, Thermodynamically Conjugate variables. Digressions: Is toasting bread a reversible process? Do microwaves get water hotter than other heating methods? Lecture 4 Audio
