What is the mean separation between the atoms? 6. (15 points) The heat capacity Cn of a normal metal at a very low absolute temperature is of the form Cn ? ? T where ? is a constant characteristic of the metal. If such a metal is superconducting below a critical temperature Tc , then its heat capacity Cs in the

superconducting state in the temperature range 0 ? T ? Tc is approximately given by the relation CS ? ?T

where

? is some constant. No heat is absorbed or given off when a

metal is transformed from its normal to its superconducting state at the critical temperature Tc . Hence it follows that at this temperature Sn ?

(a) What statements can you make about the entropies S n and S s in the limit as T ? 0 ? (b) Use the answer to part(a), and the connection between heat capacity and entropy, to find a relation between Cs and Cn at the critical temperature Tc .
