t_m = 273.15 ## mean temperature in kelvin
print("\n Example 2.1")
del_s = del_h*1e3/t_m
print"%s %.2f %s"%("\n Increase in entropy is ",del_s," J mol^-1 K^-1")
Example 2.1

Increase in entropy is  22.04  J mol^-1 K^-1

#ans are converted into units
Example 2.2

Part A:

Fraction of atoms with energy equal to or greater than 1eV at temperature  300.00  K is 1.64e-17

Part B:

Fraction of atoms with energy equal to or greater than 1eV at temperature 1500.00  K is  4.40e-04
