# Maxwell's distribution

## Main Question or Discussion Point

I have one question, I am sorry if it's stupid or something.

So, when we write down the Maxwell's distribution, we integrate over the spectrum of velocities... But that is from 0 to infinity.. (or minus infinitiy to infinity nevermind)
Is there any way someone can cut-off the above? Since we know that nothing can overcome EVER the speed of light?

Good question. See Maxwell–Jüttner distribution.

If any thing is smaller than light particles then it is possible
