Equipartition Sentence Examples
These equations express the " law of equipartition of energy," commonly spoken of as the Maxwell-Boltzmann Law.
The law of equipartition shows that the various mean energies of different kinds are all equal, each being measured by the quantity 1/4h.
In fact the proved tendency for the gas to pass into the " normal state " in which there is equipartition of energy, represents in this case nothing but the tendency for the translational energy to become dissipated into the energy of innumerable small vibrations.
This energy, therefore, comes under a different category from the energy for which the law of equipartition was proved, for in proving this law conservation of ' Very significant confirmation of this conjecture is obtained from a study of the specific heats of the elements in the solid state.Advertisement
