The STP LJ Thermal Equilibrium program simulates the interaction between two systems of Lennard-Jones particles brought into thermal contact. The purpose of this simulation is to explore the nature of thermal equilibrium and the relation, if any, between the kinetic and potential energies of two systems in thermal contact. The two initially isolated systems have 81 (red) and 64(green) particles by default.

STP LJThermalEquilibrium 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_LJThermalEquilibrium.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.

Please note that this resource requires at least version 1.5 of Java.
