The animated simulation of an ideal gas

Xgas, animated simulation of an ideal gas

Xgas is a physical simulation of an ideal gas in a heated box. Gas molecules move around the box with velocities dependent on their temperature. A chamber consisting of two boxes contains the gas molecules collide with the walls, their temperature approaches that of the box.

Use mouse button 1 to create molecules one at a time at the cursor position. Use mouse button 2 to create the maximum number of molecules at the cursor position.

Usage xgas [ -options ]

Options -as Sets the autoStart resource. -ts Sets the timeStepSize resource. -d Sets the delay resource. -rb Sets the randomBounce resource. -eq Sets the equilibrium resource. -mm Sets the maxMolecules resource. -fg Sets the foreground. -bg Sets the background.
