Partition function of 1, 2, and 3D monatomic ideal gas: A simple and comprehensive review
Abstract
This article discusses partition function of monatomic ideal gas which is given in Statistical Physisc at Physics Department, Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences, Institut Teknologi Bandung, Indonesia. Students in general are not familiar with partition function. This unfamiliarness was detected at a problem of partition function which was regiven in an examination in other dimensions that had been previously given in the lecture. Based on this observation, the need of a simple but comprehensive article about partition function in one, two, and threedimensions is a must. For simplicity, a monatomic ideal gas is chosen.
