Problem 8P

Construct a table of all the possible combinations of numbers that can come up when you throw two dice. Your friend says, “Yes, I know that 7 is the most likely total number when two dice are thrown. But ?why 7?” Based on your table, answer your friend, and explain that, in thermodynamics, the situations that are likely to be observed are those that can be formed in the greatest number of ways.

Step 1 of 3

Solution 8P The following table contain all the possible combination of number that can come up when we throw two dice. 1 1 4 1 1 2 4 2 1 3 4 3 1 4 4 4 1 5 4 5 1 6 4 6 2 1 5 1 2 2 5 2 2 3 5 3 2 4 5 4 2 5 5 5 2 6 5 6 3 1 6 1 3 2 6 2 3 3 6 3 3 4 6 4 3 5 6 5 3 6 6 6 Let us now make a table all the possible combination of a particular number of outcome. Outcome Possible combinations Total number of possible outcome 2 (1+1) 1 3 (1+2), (2+1) 2 4 (1+3), (2+2), (3+1) 3 5 (1+4), (2+3), (3+2), (4+1) 4 6 (1+5), (2+4), (3+3), (4+2), (5+1) 5 7 (1+6), (2+5), (3+4), (4+3), (5+2), (6+1) 6 8 (2+6), (3+5), (4+4), (6+2), (5+3)...
