In thermodynamics (ignoring relativistic effects) you can use the maxwell-boltzmann-distribution to find the average speed of the gas particles.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

[itex]v^2=\frac{8kT}{\pi m}[/itex]

But there are high Temperatures that would have average speeds > c.

Are there distributions that describe gases with an average speed of 0.5 relativistically?
