For a system obeying Boltzmann statistics, we know what µ is from Chapter 6. Suppose, though, that you knew the distribution function (equation) but didn’t know µ You could still determine µ by requiring that the total number of particles, summed over all single-particle states, equal N. Carry out this calculation, to rederive the formula µ = − kT ln( z1/N). (This is normally how µ is determined in quantum statistics, although the math is usually more difficult.)
