I am a 2nd year graduate student at Binghamton University in NY. My focus is in theoretical condensed matter physics. Quantum magnetism, phase transitions of dilute gases in optical lattices, and exotic phases of matter are just a few of my growing interests.

comment Minimum size of an asteroid to actually impact earth
I understand this, but neglected to mention it to keep the question short. I'm assuming that there are a few ''typical'' compositions of asteroids, and its these most common compositions that I'm interested in.

comment Occupied lattice sites, determining number of microstates and energy
Your guess for the number of microstates can't be right just from units. $bP$ has units of energy, when you need arguments that are numbers. Units are always the first check to see if your formulas make sense.
