(89) This general relation can now be applied to the

for ln Z in the case of a monatomic molecule. Remembering that V = L,L,L, the

partial differentiation yields immediately — lo ln Z – loln V — 1 T 8 0L, T B 0L, T

Give a simple physical explanation to account for this

the sun consists of very hot dense gases, while its outer corona is cooler and less

dense. Studies of spectral lines of light from the sun indicate that an atom may ...
