Using the probability distribution in Exercise 8.6, write down an expression for the average energy.


Using the verisimilitude disposal in Exercise 8.6, transcribe down an countenance for the middle enthusiasm of the neutrons in the disposal. How does the middle enthusiasm collate to the most reasonable enthusiasm EMP?

Exercise 8.6

Using the verisimilitude disposal you conservative in Exercise 8.5, transcribe an countenance for the sum of neutrons N having an enthusiasm greater than 0.025 eV after a while an middle air of 600 K.

Exercise 8.5

Suppose that N(E) is the sum of neutrons in a bulk of space where a Maxwell–Boltzmann verisimilitude disposal applies. Transcribe down an countenance for the sum sum of neutrons in the disposal having an enthusiasm between E and E + dE.
