If we have a "quasi-rigid" rotating convective cell where the gas overall rotates at the same angular velocity, we could establish a non-inertial frame of reference co-rotating with this convective cell such that the particles of the gas (seen from that frame of reference) may follow a Maxwell-Boltzmann distribution.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

But with what statistical distribution may we characterize the temperature function of a system of gases whose fluid rotations occur around various arbitrary axes and speeds with cells of a varying size, evaluated from aninertial, observing frame? In this case, the particle velocities may or may not follow a Maxwell-Boltzmann distribution.
