Goals
Statistical physics is science for relatetion between the macro and the micro systems. The repetation of the basic properties of thermodynamics and learning the macroscopic and microscopik systems.
Content
Particle systems and macroscopik and microscopic parameters of a system, reversibility and irreversibility systems, definition of teh İdeal gas, pressure and mean free path of ideal gas in a closed box. Basic probability concepts, statistical ensenbles, the binomial distribution, mean values and standart deviations, continuous probability distribution. Statistical describtion of systems of particles. Distribution of energy between macroscopic systems, the approach to thermal equilibrium, mean energy and mean pressure of an ideal gas. Microscopic theory and maroscopic measurements, determination of the absolute temperature, high and low absolute temperature, work, internal energy and heat.
