The Maxwell-Boltzmann Velocity Distribution Function in Detail: https://arxiv.org/abs/2107.12354
Gilberto Jonas Damião, Clóves Gonçalves Rodrigues
Despite its importance, in the introductory disciplines of exact science courses, the demonstration of the Maxwell-Boltzmann velocity distribution law is not explained, only its final equation is shown. In order to fill this deficiency, in this work we try to show in detail, in a very didactic way, the demonstration of such a law. For this, the kinetic theory of gases is initially introduced. The good agreement of the Maxwell-Boltzmann velocity distribution law with experimental results and its applicability limit is also presented.
