2D Classical Gas

A numerical simulation of a classical, monatomic gas. The upper histogram displays the instantaneous distribution of particle speeds; the lower graph gives the time-average of the same distribution. The shape to which the lower graph tends is ~ v * exp(-[v/v_th]^2), the two-dimensional Boltzmann distribution.
