PHY360 - Thermodynamics & Statistical Mechanics

This course provides a description of thermal energy on the atomic scale. Boltzmann statistics are used to represent averaged physical properties for individual atoms. The relationship between macrostates and microstates is explore in the contest of quantifiable measurements. Students will develop additional thermodynamic variables, such as enthalpy, in the framework of classical thermal physics.
