I just have a question of this subject, it is a pretty straight forward concept, however there are things that i just can;t figure out, like in any given gas which is the minimum volume required to have a maxwell boltzman distribution, @ 1 atm 273.15 K ? I honestly just can't figure it out... can someone please help me ? i don't know where to even start, please don't give me the answer i just want to accquire the rationale!
=) thanks in advanced!

yeah sorry i postulated wrong, here it is what i meant, 10^6 molecules are needed to establish a MaxwellBoltzmann distribution, what is the minimum volume for the ideal gas law to hold @ 1atm and 0 C.
The thing is that i didn't want to post the problem I really need to think it by myself i just wanted a bit of guidance, I have a test on this next wed, so i really want to learn it! so yeah thats what i meant.. I still have no clue.. :s thank you! =)
