.We can represent the ten atoms by drawing ten boxes; an empty box signifies an atom with zero quanta of energy; a filled box signifies an atom with one quantum of energy see Fig. A common example of this is the number of children in families, which is often quoted as 2.
In both cases, you end up with the same final situation: This is because in the latter case additional energy will be expended on doing work on the atmosphere as the gas expands. This is known as the Boltzmann distribution and also as the canonical distribution. In the next section, we are going to give a statistical definition of temperature which is based on the idea that a thermal system can have a large number of equally likely microstates, but you are only able to measure the macrostate of the system.
Two systems, each separately in thermal equilibrium with a third, are in equilibrium with each other.
Interestingly, this is about the total number of bacteria living in the guts of all humans living on planet Earth. This one possibility, with each atom having a quantum of energy, is shown in Fig.
