## What is degeneracy in Maxwell-Boltzmann distribution?

Degenerate states are different states that have the same energy level. The number of states available is known as the degeneracy of that level.

## What is Z in Boltzmann distribution?

k is Boltzmann’s constant, T is absolute temperature, N is the total number of particles: Z is the partition function: e is Euler’s number.

**What happens to the peak of the curve in the Maxwell-Boltzmann distribution graph if temperature increases?**

If we heat the gas to a higher temperature, the peak of the graph will shift to the right (since the average molecular speed will increase). As the graph shifts to the right, the height of the graph has to decrease in order to maintain the same total area under the curve.

### What is the limitations of Maxwell Boltzmann statistics?

limitations of Maxwell Boltzmann statistics Maxwell–Boltzmann statistics is valid only in the classical limit. It applies well to an ideal gas. It also gives you the approx specific heat for solids in temperatures high enough. it fails to explain certain phenomenon like photo-electric effect, black body radiation etc.

### What are the assumptions of Maxwell-Boltzmann distribution?

The assumption of this equation are that particles do not interact and they are classical,that means each particles state are considered to be independent from the other particles state and moreover the particles are assumed to be in thermal equilibrium.

**How do you find the Boltzmann distribution?**

Boltzmann distribution. The distribution is expressed in the form where is state energy (which varies from state to state), and (a constant of the distribution) is the product of Boltzmann’s constant and thermodynamic temperature .

## What does Pi mean in the Boltzmann distribution?

where pi is the probability of state i, pj the probability of state j, and εi and εj are the energies of states i and j, respectively. The Boltzmann distribution is often used to describe the distribution of particles, such as atoms or molecules, over energy states accessible to them.

## How does temperature affect the Maxwell-Boltzmann distribution?

The y-axis of the Maxwell-Boltzmann distribution graph gives the number of molecules per unit speed. The total area under the entire curve is equal to the total number of molecules in the gas. If we heat the gas to a higher temperature, the peak of the graph will shift to the right (since the average molecular speed will increase).

**What is the Maxwell Boltzmann distribution law?**

The classical Maxwell Boltzmann distribution law may be used to approximate the distribution of population among the quantized energy levels of a gas-phase diatomic molecule.
