Boltzmann Distribution

where are the number (or number density) of atoms in energy states 1 and 2, respectively, are the respective degeneracies of those energy states (i.e., how many distinct configurations of the atom have that same energy state), is the energy difference between the two states, is Boltzmann’s constant, and is the temperature describing the distribution of states in the system
