The MDApproachToEquilibriumTwoPartitions program shows a system of particles in two dimensions interacting via the Lennard-Jones potential. The program displays the particles in the box as a function of time once the partition dividing the box in half is removed. Users can also run the simulation in reverse to explore irreversibility.

STP MDApproachToEquilibriumTwoPartitions 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 MDApproachToEquilibriumTwoPartitions.jar file will run the program if Java is installed. Additional Open Source Physics programs for Statistical and Thermal Physics are available and 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.
