Problem Set #4

Due in hand-in box by 12:40 PM, Wednesday, March 6

For a simple fluid show that CP =(U/T )P +V P . Since the thermal expansion coefficient

can be either positive or negative, CP could be either less than or greater than

(U/T )P . [Hint: Use the first law to find an expression for d/Q, then expand in terms of

the variables T and P .]

An ideal gas for which CV = 52 N k is taken from point a to point b in the figure along three

paths: acb, adb, and ab. Here P2 = 2P1 and V2 = 2V1 . Assume that (U/V )T = 0.

a) Compute the heat supplied to the gas (in terms of N , k, and T1 ) in each of the three

processes. [Hint: You may wish to find CP first.]

b) What is the heat capacity of the gas for the process ab?

Problem 3: Thermodynamics of a Curie Law Paramagnet

Simple magnetic systems can be described by two independent variables. State variables

of interest include the magnetic field H, the magnetization M , the temperature T , and the

internal energy U . Four quantities that are often measured experimentally are

M

T , the isothermal magnetic susceptibility,

H T

M

, the temperature coefficient,

T H

d/Q

CM , the heat capacity at constant M , and

dT M

d/Q

CH , the heat capacity at constant H.

dT H

A particular example of a simple magnetic system is the Curie law paramagnet defined by

an equation of state of the form M = aH/T where a is a constant.

For such a system one can show that (U/M )T = 0 and we shall assume that CM = bT

where b is a constant.

system (that is, not necessarily the Curie law paramagnet). Express CM as a derivative

of the internal energy. Find an expresson for CH CM in terms of a derivative of the

internal energy, H, and the temperature coefficient. Write an expression for dU (T, M )

where the coefficients of the differentials dT and dM are expressed in terms of measured

quantities and H(T, M ).

b) Find explicit expressions for CH (T, M ) and U (T, M ) for the Curie law paramagnet.

You may assume that U (T = 0, M = 0) = 0.

c) Consider again an arbitrary simple magnetic system, but now use H and M as the

independent variables. Write an expression for dU (H, M ) where the coefficients of the

differentials dH and dM are expressed in terms of the measured quantities and H. Is

the coefficient of the dM term the same as in part a)?

d) Find explicit expressions for the coefficients in c) in the case of the Curie law paramag-

net. You will need your result from b) for CH . Convert the coefficients to functions of

H and M , that is, eliminate T . Integrate dU (H, M ) to find U (H, M ). Compare your

result with that found in b).

e) Using T and M as the independent variables, find the general constraint on an adiabatic

change; that is, find (T /M )Q=0 in terms of a derivative of the internal energy,

H(M, T ), and CM (M, T ).

f) Evaluate (T /M )Q=0 for the Curie law paramagnet and integrate the result to find

the equation of an adiabatic path in the T, M plane through the point T0 , M0 .

g) For the Curie law paramagnet, draw an isothermal path on a plot of M verses H. Pick

a point on that path; show that the slope of an adiabatic path going through that

point is less than the slope of the isothermal path.

on fixed lattice sites. Each moment ~ i has the same length , but is free to rotate in 3

dimensions. When a magnetic field of strength H is applied in the positive z direction, the

energy of the ith moment is given by i = mi H where mi is the z component of ~ i (that

~ i z = mi ).

is,

a) What are the physically allowed ranges of values associated with mi , M , and E?

b) How many microscopic variables are necessary to completely specify the state of the

system?

In a certain limiting case, the accessible volume in phase space for the microcanonical en-

semble is given by

M2

(2)N exp[ 2 ].

and T .

d) Is there some condition under which the solution to c) is unphysical for the system

under consideration? Explain your answer. For what values of T is the expression for

a good approximation?

e) The probability density p(M ) for the z component of a single magnetic moment can

be written as p(m) = 0 / where is given above. What is 0 ?

f) Find p(m). [Note: For the limit which applies here, an expression for p(m) includ-

ing powers of m no higher than the first is adequate.] Sketch p(m) and check its

normalization.

g) Use p(m) to computed < m >. Compare the result with that which one would expect.

l

F

A one dimensional chain is made up of N identical elements, each of length l. The angle

between successive elements can be either 00 or 1800 , but there is no difference in internal

energy between these two possibilities. For the sake of counting, one can think of each

element as either pointing to the right (+) or to the left (-). Then one has

N = n+ + n

L = l(n+ n ) = l(2n+ N )

S(N, n+ ).

b) Find an expression for the tension in the chain as a function of T , N , and n+ ,

F(T, N, n+ ). Notice the strange fact that there is tension in the chain even though

there is no energy required to reorient two neighboring elements! The restoring force

in this problem is generated by entropy considerations alone. This is not simply an

academic oddity, however. This system is used as a model for elastic polymers such as

rubber.

d) Use the result for the high temperature behavior from c) to find an expression for the

thermal expansion coefficient L1 (L/T )F . Note the sign. Find a stout rubber

band. Hang a weight from it so that its length is extended by about a factor of two.

Now heat the rubber band (a hair drier works well here) and see if the weight goes up

or down.

Consider a collection of N identical harmonic oscillators with negligible (but non-zero) in-

teractions. In a microcanonical ensemble with energy E, the system is on a surface in phase

space given by

N 2

m 2 qi2

X pi

+ = E.

i=1

2m 2

a) Find the volume of phase space enclosed, (E), as follows. Transform to new variables

xi = pi 1iN

2m

r

m 2

xi = qiN N + 1 i 2N

2

Note that in terms of these variables the constant energy surface is a 2N dimensional

sphere. Find its volume. Find the corresponding volume in p-q space.

d) Find the joint probability density for the position coordinate qi and the momentum

coordinate pi of one of the oscillators. Sketch p(pi , qi ).
