Statistical mechanics

Looking for recommendations on the best statistical mechanics textbooks? In this article, I have listed some of the best statistical mechanics books for Statistical Physics majors. In this list, I have collected only those books that are loved by both teachers and students. These books are considered the top textbooks in all the colleges and…

In this article, we will explore and define macrostates and microstates in statistical physics with examples and illustrations. Macrostates and Microstates Consider some (4, say) distinguishable particles. If we wish to distribute them into two exactly similar compartments in an open box, then the priori probability for a particle of going into any one of…

Ensembles in Chemical Sciences and Statistical Physics are a collection of a number of macroscopically identical but essentially independent systems. The System, here, is defined by the collection of a large number of particles and the term macroscopically identical means that each of the systems constituting an ensemble satisfies the same macroscopic conditions, like Volume,…

Lord Rayleigh made an attempt to explain the energy distribution in black body radiation, which was completed by Jeans in 1900. The results obtained by then are known as Rayleigh-Jeans' Rules on Black Body Radiation. The law covering these rules is called Rayleigh Jean's Law. The black body emits radiation of continuously variable wavelengths right…
