Main Document

STP Ideal Gas Number Of States 

written by Harvey Gould, Jan Tobochnik, Wolfgang Christian, and Anne Cox

The STP IdealGasNumberOfStates program numerically evaluates the number of states of an ideal gas and demonstrates finite size effects by plotting the actual number of states and the asymptotic expression. The default is two-dimensional system (d=2).

STP IdealGasNumberOfStates 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_IdealGasNumberOfStates.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.
