Consider a reaction chamber containing B particles, where B is a random integer, divisible by w , with mean mN and variance s2 N ; the number of particles in the chamber will remain constant throughout the experiment. In the beginning, B - 1 particles in the chamber are heavy and inert, and one is heavy and excited.
