The Confined Lennard-Jones Two Piston System simulates a constant-energy two-dimensional system of particles confined by two frictionless pistons of equal mass M. This computer model complements theoretical work describing the adiabatic expansion of an ideal gas using the quasi-static approximation. Users can set the initial particle kinetic energy, Lennard Jones parameters, and the initial particle separation. Slow-moving particles are color-coded as blue and fast particles are color-coded as yellow. The time evolution of temperature, pressure, and piston speed are shown in a second window.
