Why does Planck's constant appear in classical statistical mechanics.
I gather a constant appears in because we would like to count classical states in phase space and so therefore we have to separate phase space into "boxes" such that $$\delta q_i\delta p_i=h_0$$
Is a good reason as to why this constant is equal to $\hbar$?
