Hi, I have a question about Maxwell-Boltzmann Distribution.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

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?
