|Title||Tricky Dimensions – a Spin-off of a Sim|
|Keywords||ideal gas, kinetic theory, dimensions, chi distribution, chi square distribution, Maxwell distribution, Maxwell-Boltzmann distribution, exponential distribution|
|Description||Pointing out that lowering the dimension of space from 3D to 2D changes the speed distribution and even more markedly the energy distribution that a simulation calculates for a monatomic ideal gas. The reason is also outlined but not elaborated in detail.|
|Level||Undergraduate - Advanced, Graduate|
