Item Picture
written by Spencer Wheaton
A worksheet  that uses the Einstein solid model to illustrate the fundamental ideas of Statistical and Thermal Physics.   Within this model, each atom is viewed as three independent  (i.e. non-interacting), one-dimensional quantum harmonic oscillators. Each oscillator can contain an amount of energy above the ground state that is an integer multiple of hbar*omega.

Please note that this resource requires at least version 1.6 of Java (JRE).
