THE EQUIPARTITION THEOREM 7 ' 5 Proof of the theorem In classical statistical
mechanics there exists a very useful general result which we shall now establish.
As usual, the energy of a system is a function of some/ generalized coordinates ...
Equation (7-5-7) is the so-called "equipartition theorem" of classical statistical
mechanics. In words it states that the mean value of each independent quadratic
term in the energy is equal to %kT. It should be emphasized that the equipartition
It should be emphasized that the equipartition theorem is valid only in classical
statistical mechanics. In the correct quantum-mechanical description a system
has a set of possible energy levels, as indicated in Fig. 7-5-1, where E0 is the ...
