Solutions to Problem Set #3

Since we are asked for an approximate answer we will resort to the central limit theorem.

For this we need < x > and < x2 > for a single sweep of the laser beam.

with

Although it was not asked for, here is a sketch of the resulting probability density.

Problem 2: Probability Densities of Macroscopic verses Microscopic Variables

a) Let E1 be the kinetic energy of a single atom in the gas. We can begin with the expression

for p(E1 ) found in problem 4 on Problem Set 2.

b) For the sum of N statistically independent variables, the mean is the sum of the means

b) P V /nR = h looks like the ideal gas law with h → T , so call h ≡ T and thus find the

following equations of state.

Substitute the given model expression relating volume changes to changes in the pressure and

the temperature, dV = −V KT dP + V α dT , into the differential for work. As a simplification

we are told to replace the actual volume V by its value at the starting point V1 in the

coefficients entering the differential for the work. Of course the volume itself can not really

remain constant, for in that case d/ W = −P dV = 0.

d/ W = −P dV = KT P V1 dP − αP V1 dT

Along “c” dT and dP are related at every point along the path,

T2 − T1

dT = dP,

P2 − P1

so the expression for the differential of work can be written as

T2 − T1

d/ W = KT P V1 dP − αP V1 ( ) dP

P2 − P1

T2 − T1

= KT V1 − αV1 P dP

Note that the work done along each path is different due to the different contributions from

the α (thermal expansion) term. Path “b” requires the least work; path “a” requires the

most.

Problem 5: Work and the Radiation Field

The differential of work is d/ W = −P dV and one immediately thinks about trying to express

P in terms of V in order to simplify the integral. However, along path “a” this is not

necessary: along one part dV = 0 and along the other the temperature, and hence the

pressure, is a constant.

3 V2

Since the figure in the problem indicates that V1 > V2 , the underlined result is positive.

Along path “b” there are no shortcuts and we must prepare to carry out the integral. Since

d

/ W is expressed in terms of dV , we convert the T dependence of P into a function of V .

Now we can carry out the integral over the path to obtain the total work done.

Problem 6: Equation of State for a Ferromagnet

a) We are looking for the magnetization as a function of the field and the temperature,

M (H, T ), so we form the differential of M as follows.

∂M ∂M

dM = dH + dT

∂H T ∂T H

We are given the two coefficients in the expansion, but must make sure that their cross

derivatives are equal as is required for an exact differential.

∂ ∂M 1 a

=

∂T ∂H T Tc (1 − T /Tc )2

f 0 (H)

∂ ∂M 1

=

∂H ∂T H Tc (1 − T /Tc )2

The equality of these two expressions requires that f 0 (H) = a. Integration gives f (H) =

aH + c but we are told that f (0) = 0 so we know that c = 0. Thus

f (H) = aH

b) Now we must integrate the exact differential to find the state function M (H, T ).

Z

∂M

M (H, T ) = dT + g(H)

∂T H

f (H)

= + M0 (1 − T /Tc )1/2 + g(H)

(1 − T /Tc )

f 0 (H)

∂M

= + g 0 (H) by calculation from above

∂H T (1 − T /Tc )

a

= + 3bH 2 as given

1 − T /Tc

g 0 (H) = 3bH 2

g(H) = bH 3 + K

M (H = 0, T = Tc ) = 0 ⇒ K = 0

aH

M (H, T ) = M0 (1 − T /Tc )1/2 + + bH 3

(1 − T /Tc )
