Description:

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. Users can observe the kinetic energy in both atoms, as well as the energy stored in the spring connecting them. Context-rich questions are included on the average kinetic energy of the atoms, their thermal equilibrium with each other, and how their speed changes as the spring gains energy. This page is part of a collection of Java applets with tutorial questions developed for students of undergraduate physics.
