The STP Binomial program displays the probability that n spins are up out of a total N noninteracting spin 1/2 magnetic moments. The default number of spins is 60 and the probability of that a single spin points up is 0.5.
STP Binomial is part of a suite of Open Source Physics programs that model aspects of Statistical and Thermal Physics (STP). The program is distributed as a ready-to-run (compiled) Java archive. Double clicking the stp_Binomial.jar file will run the program if Java is installed on your computer. Additional programs can be found by searching ComPADRE for Open Source Physics, STP, or Statistical and Thermal Physics.
Please note that this resource requires at least version 1.5 of Java.
