Main Document

STP EinsteinSolids Program 

written by Harvey Gould, Jan Tobochnik, Wolfgang Christian, and Anne Cox

The STP EinsteinSolids program displays the energy distribution of an Einstein solid in thermal contact with another Einstein solid. The purpose of this program is to explore the distribution of energy between two systems in thermal contact. The default state is two Einstein solids, system A and system B of with 4 particles each, and energies 10 and 2, respectively. Additional states and parameters can be specified using the Display|Switch GUI menu item.

STP EinsteinSolids is part of a suite of Open Source Physics programs that model aspects of Statistical and Thermal Physics (STP). The program is distributed as a ready-to-run (compiled) Java archive. Double clicking the stp_EinsteinSolids.jar file will run the program if Java is installed on your computer. Additional programs can be found by searching ComPADRE for Open Source Physics, STP, or Statistical and Thermal Physics.
