Problem 28P

Use a computer to sum the rotational partition function (equation) algebraically, keeping terms through j = 6. Then calculate the average energy and the heat capacity. Plot the heat capacity for values of kT . ranging from 0 to 3. Have you kept enough terms in Z to give accurate results within this temperature range?
