Question

- What is the aim of the statistical physics?

(a) To determine a mean energy.

(b) To determine a probability density function.

(c) To determine fluctuations.

(d) To determine system’s number of particles. - an Why

Answer #1

Statistical physics uses the theories of probability and statistics along with other mathematical tools to deal with large populations and approximations.

Its main purpose is to clarify the properties of matter in aggregate, in terms of physical laws governing atomic motion.

Basically, statistical physics is a tool to study a many particle system, its interactions and energy involved.

So, the correct option would be option A. Other options are the tools used by statistical physics to achieve this goal.

Which couple of assertions relates to quantum
statistics?
(a) Probability density function is a function of coordinates and
momenta of all particles; infinite time is needed to measure
positions of all energy levels.
(b) Initial conditions cannot be determined simultaneously for all
particles; system’s state is described by coordinates and momenta
(in phase space).
(c) It is impossible to determine the quantum states with certain
energy (stationary levels); system’s state is set by the value of
system’s energy, but not...

The purpose of a statistical hypothesis test is to
a.

which it was drawn
b.
Specifyi the probability that H1 is
equal to zero
c.
Evaluate the direction of the research hypothesis
d.
Specify the probability that H0 is
equal to zero

a) if we have a radioactive source between alpha particles with
energy T = 4Mev, what is the value of the magnetic field applied so
that the radius of the curvature is 10cm? b) the same for electrons
instead of alpha particles with T = 4MeV

1) Free electron model: (a) Show that the mean kinetic energy of
one electron
in the quantum mechanical free electron model is 3/5 E F at T = 0
K.
(b) Calculate the Fermi energy and the mean kinetic energy for
potassium
in electron volts. Use that K has a relative atomic mass of M =
39.1 u and a
density of 856 kg m^−3 . (c) Calculate the corresponding electron
velocities.
(d) Calculate the density of states at the...

The aim of a logit model was to determine mobile phone ownership
as a function of (logarithm of) income. Mobile phone ownership was
a binary variable: Y = 1 if a household owns a mobile phone, zero
otherwise.
Li = −2.77231 + 0.347582 ln(Income)
t = (−3.35) (4.05)
χ 2 (1 df) = 16.681 (p value = 0.0000);
where; Li = estimated logit and where ln Income is the logarithm
of income. The χ2 measures the
goodness of fit of...

a.What does energy quantization mean? How is that
different from classical physics?
b.Explain what is meant by wave-particle duality.
c.Estimate the uncertainty in your position when
running across the quad.
d.Describe a particle-in-a-box.

The “ultraviolet catastrophe” was the incorrect conclusion
provided by classical physics that at high temperature a blackbody
radiator would emit infinite light. Max Planck solved the problem
by suggesting that
Question 6 options:
a)

multiples of hν.
c)
electrons in atoms are restricted to set orbits with definite
energy.
d)
light consists of particles of energy called photons.
e)
only certain colors of light are...

what form of radiation has the highest energy and
mass?
A alpha particles
B beta particles
C X-rays
D Gamma rays

Determine the experimental design (1 mark)
Below, the aim of the study is stated, along with the data
collected to answer the aim. Select the option that best describes
this experimental design. Assume that the only tests of interest
are stated in the aim. Assume that the data are analysed without
any aggregation (e.g. taking averages) unless stated otherwise.
Aim: To test how the difference between the
call frequency of coastal vs. inland bird species differs in summer
vs. winter....
