We apply the general formalism of statistical mechanics to classical and quantum systems of noninteracting particles and discuss the equipartition theorem, the Maxwell velocity distribution, the Fermi-Dirac and Bose-Einstein distributions, blackbody radiation, the ideal Fermi and Bose gases, and the specific heat of a crystalline solid among other applications.
