The EJS Ideal Gas with Maxwell's Demon model simulates a two-dimensional ideal gas in a square box, monitored by Maxwell's Demon (which allows only faster than average particles to move from the right side to the left side, while allowing only slower than average particles to move the other way). This simulation can be used as part of the activity described in "The Statistical Interpretation of Entropy: An Activity" by Todd Timberlake, to be published in The Physics Teacher.
