The STP DemonEinsteinSolid program displays a histogram of the energy of a demon that exchanges energy with an ideal gas of particles. The purpose of this simulation is to understand how the demon acts as an ideal thermometer. The default system is an Einstein solid of N=40 particles. Additional states and parameters can be specified using the Display|Switch GUI menu item. STP DemonEinsteinSolid 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_DemonEinsteinSolid.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.
