Modern Physics for Scientists and Engineers | 4th Edition

Problem 50

(a) What density of conduction electrons in copper isneeded in order for the Maxwell-Boltzmann normalizationconstant to be A 1 at T 273 K? Use yourresult to argue why Maxwell-Boltzmann statistics arenot valid in this case. (b) Repeat the calculation forHe gas at the same temperature. (c) Repeat for a neutronstar, which is composed entirely of neutrons andhas a temperature of 106 K. (d) The average density ofa neutron star is on the order of 1017 kg/m3. Use youranswer to part (c) to discuss whether MaxwellBoltzmannstatistics are valid in this case.
