Question

For practice in counting microstates, determine how many ways there are to arrange three quanta among four one-dimensional oscillators. (This would represent one-and-a-hird atoms, so this doesn't make physical sense.)

Solution

VerifiedStep 1

1 of 2So if we have 4 one dimensional oscilators we have 4 places that we work for(0000),and if there is 3 quanta then we are working with 3 numbers that we can separate in different ways.

Our combinations are:3000,0300,0030,0003,2100,2010,..... if we do this till the end we get 20 different combinations.
