Abstract

A low pressure gas (≤ 1 atmosphere) can be modeled using Maxwell-Boltzmann kinetics with deviations of less than a few percent from experimental data for most properties. The gas model assumes that:
  1. a)

    The gas is composed of rigid spheres that have vanishingly small volumes.

     
  2. b)

    There are no long range interactions between spheres.

     
  3. c)

    All gas-gas collisions are elastic.

     
  4. d)

    The spheres have no rotational or vibrational energy.
