Item Picture
written by Spencer Wheaton
A worksheet  that uses the two-state paramagnet model to investigate the fundamental ideas of Statistical and Thermal Physics.  This model considers N non-interacting magnetic dipoles, with dipole moment mu in an external magnetic field of strength B. Each dipole can point either in the direction of the magnetic field, or in the opposite direction (i.e. the dipoles are "two-state"). A dipole pointing in the direction of the magnetic field has less energy than one pointing in the opposite direction, since it requires energy to flip a dipole from being aligned with the field to being anti-aligned.

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