Problem Set #1 (Hint and clarification added 2/6/12)

Problem Set #2 (Typos in van der Waals equation now corrected)

Problem Set #4 (Now complete. Problem 5 should offer an incentive to attend class on Tuesday!)

Problem Set #6 Hint for PB 6.1: start with their equation 6.1.19 and identify <n_epsilon> with n*_i/g_i; eventually take g_i=1.

Problem Set #9 Note added clarifications. In Problem 2, Mathematica is not needed for part b); in a) it is most helpful in subpart i). In 2b)i), the result actually holds for all B in this model.
