 P: 3 Thanks. Yeap, here. 1st http://www.eecis.udel.edu/~breech/ph...es/node32.html Sorry I haven't used LaTeX well enough to type it here again. At derivation of ψ(v)=f(vx)f(vy)f(vz) by taking derivatives with respect to vx, it is very unclear to me. I think dψ/dvx = dψ/dv * dv/dvx. And after that I dont know how to solve it. 2nd http://www.maxwellsociety.net/Physic...Boltzmann.html This seems better and easier. At the part argumenting for spherical shell, there are a lot of values of vx/y/z so that give the same value of v!? And the application of function g(v)=$\alpha$v^n * e^(-$\beta$v^2) is a bit evidencelessly.
