A system has 8 spin 1/2 , distinguishable particles. Explain how many macrostates will the system have. Also, calculate the degeneracy of each macrostate. What is the total number of microstates the above mentioned system has? If each microstate is equally probable. What will be the probability for the system to exist in any one microstate? Please solve this question. I am a bit confused.

u want to know about macrostate..right..?
solution

go through the method dear..little bit helpful
• Ruby negi
dear, degeneracy depends on spin (by the formula 2s+1 where s is spin) so please check what is the spin of particles?
Deepanshu Chaudhary
spin is 1/2
• Chandra dhawan
dear spin half particle, it means follow fermion and follow Pauli Principle so don't repeat no and fill one by one.....
• Deepanshu Chaudhary
How maam can you show? The particle have 1/2 spin
Dhairya sharma
then dear fill it one by one......and dont repeat
• Dhairya sharma
dear first clearify that particle have integer spin or half integer spin.
Dhairya sharma
no of marcro state will be 4 i think
• Mahak
there will be 4 macrostate
