The Lennard-Jones PVT System simulates a 2D system of particles confined between a thermal reservoir and a piston. This computer model is designed to study the equation of state for particles interacting via a simple but realistic molecular potential that has a weak long-range attraction and a strong short range repulsion. Slow-moving particles are color-coded as blue and fast particles are color-coded as yellow. Users can set the initial particle energy, the initial particle separation, and the thermal reservoir temperature Tr. The thermal conductivity parameter ? determines the probability that a collision with the thermal wall will affect (thermalize) the colliding particle. If the conductivity is one, the particle velocity after a reservoir collision is set according to Maxwell-Boltzmann statistics. If the conductivity is zero, all reservoir collisions are elastic and the total internal energy E of the system is conserved.
