Hi, I have a question about Maxwell-Boltzmann Distribution. First, because of mass conservataion and energy conservatioin, Sum Ni and Sum EiNi must be constant. Partial of both sum will be 0. Is that why we adopted constant alpha as a parametric constant? because without alpha, partial Nj of Sum Ni will be 1 and there must be inequality because partial Nj of Sum Ni has to be 0. And would that mean alpha and beta will be always 0?
