This java applet is a simulation that demonstrates the kinetic theory of
gases. The color of each molecule indicates the amount of kinetic energy
it has. Use the Setup popup menu at the upper right to select one of
several examples. At the bottom of the applet is a velocity histogram
distribution of velocities of the molecules. Again, color is used
to indicate kinetic energy.
