Problem 27P

Rather than insisting that all the molecules be in the left half of a container, suppose we only require that they be in the leftmost 99% (leaving the remaining 1% completely empty). What is the probability of finding such an arrangement if there are 100 molecules in the container? What if there are 10,000 molecules? What if there are 1023?

Step-by-Step Solution:

# Step 1

We will first find the probability of one particle in this particular 1% region. Then we will find the probability of finding another particle in the same region and similarly we will extend the solution to 100 particle.
