written by Kyle Forinash
This item is a simulation on the movement and energy of a diatomic molecule made up of two atoms with a mass ratio of 1:4.  Students can observe the kinetic energy in both atoms, as well as the energy stored in the spring connecting them.  Related context-rich questions are provided to extend student understanding of thermal equilibrium.  See Related items below for a link to the author's full collection of simulations on thermodynamics.  

This page is part of a collection of Java applets with tutorial questions developed for students of undergraduate physics.
