physical situations Note that in thermodynamics we pick different independent variables for different physical situations and de ne different thermodynamic potentials e g A A NVT G G NpT This leads to the thought that different ensembles correspond to different thermodynamic functions How do we find the thermodynamic functions for a given ensemble Why should this be true It is due to the smallness of uctuations This leads to the equivalence of ensembles and suggests that we use whichever ensemble is convenient for a particular calculation Let s fool around and see what happens SNVE k1noNIE klna

Thermodynamics can use any independent variables and then de ne a thermodynamic potential Statistical Mechanics can de ne an ensemble to match any choice of independent variables CEM 992 7 Lecture 7 Why does the above summation trick work Dominance of maximum term That is IdEe39 EIdVe39ppVaE e39pEe39 pVaE EVTS e p ZeG Thus because the mean and the most probable values are the same we can obtain any thermodynamic function from any ensemble Thus all the ensembles are equivalent Conclude 1 all ensembles give the same result 2 can de ne ensembles by above recipe Fluctuations 1 If the uctuations were not small then F couldn t be identi ed with thermodynamics This shows that 2 The ensembles are equivalent and 3 Provides useful information Fluctuations in the Canonical EnsembleiT fixed E

disturbance decays if the deviation from equilibrium is not too great The TCF plays the role as the PF in equilibrium theory It tells you what you must calculate though it may be hard to evaluate Note

Why people love StudySoup

Steve Martinelli UC Los Angeles

"There's no way I would have passed my Organic Chemistry class this semester without the notes and study guides I got from StudySoup."

Jennifer McGill UCSF Med School

"Selling my MCAT study guides and notes has been a great source of side revenue while I'm in school. Some months I'm making over $500! Plus, it makes me happy knowing that I'm helping future med students with their MCAT."

Jim McGreen Ohio University

"Knowing I can count on the Elite Notetaker in my class allows me to focus on what the professor is saying instead of just scribbling notes the whole time and falling behind."


"Their 'Elite Notetakers' are making over $1,200/month in sales by creating high quality content that helps their classmates in a time of need."
