Question
A one – dimensional chain consists of a set of N rods each of length . When stretched by a load, each rod can align either parallel or perpendicular to the length of the chain. The energy of a rod is when aligned parallel to the length of the chain and is when perpendicular to it. When the chain is in thermal equilibrium at temperature T, its average length is – (December)

Question
A heater and a thermocouple are used to measure and control temperature T of a sample at . A feedback circuit supplies power ‘P’ to the heater according to the equation with approximately tuned values of coefficients G and D. In order to maintain temperature stability in the presence of an external heat perturbation which causes small but rapid fluctuation of temperature, it is necessary to, (December)
