The field of statistical physics solves complex physical problems using the methods of probability theory and statistics. Wolfram|Alpha uses these same tools to examine the motion and properties of ideal gases on a macroscopic and statistical level.
Calculate the properties of ideal and nonideal gases based on their pressure, temperature and chemical structure.
Do an ideal gas law computation:
Determine characteristics of an ideal gas:
Find characteristics of a van der Waals gas:
Examine the macroscopic properties of ideal gases, such as pressure, temperature, speed and thermal radiation.
Analyze blackbody radiation:
Find the Maxwell speed distribution of a gas:
Determine the mean free path:
Analyze random motion in multiple dimensions over time.
Analyze a random walk:
Analyze a Levy distribution:
Calculate entropy for a monoatomic ideal gas.
