(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

n(x)F(x)=d[p(x)]/dx in relation to a collection of gases

n(x) is the number density

F(x) is the force along the x direction

p(x) is the pressure of the gas along the x direction

3. The attempt at a solution

Is F(x)=-d[U(x)]/dx related?
