Hemoglobin can exist in 5 states (0,1,2,3, or 4--bound). Name each state accordingly as UB (unbound) and B1, B2, B3, and B4 (for the 4 bound states). Using Boltzmann's Law, write down the probability that the molecule exists in a bound form.

I'm really lost on this one; the instructor did not even really explain Boltzmann's Law all that much. Can anyone get me started in the right direction?

Thanks,
