# Statistical Physics

The field of statistical physics solves complex physical problems using the methods of probability theory and statistics. Wolfram|Alpha uses these same tools to examine the motion and properties of ideal gases on a macroscopic and statistical level.

Calculate the properties of ideal and nonideal gases based on their pressure, temperature and chemical structure.

#### Do an ideal gas law computation:

#### Determine characteristics of an ideal gas:

#### Find characteristics of a van der Waals gas:

### Kinetic Theory

Examine the macroscopic properties of ideal gases, such as pressure, temperature, speed and thermal radiation.

#### Analyze blackbody radiation:

#### Find the Maxwell speed distribution of a gas:

#### Determine the mean free path:

### Random Walks

Analyze random motion in multiple dimensions over time.

#### Analyze a random walk:

#### Analyze a Levy distribution:

### Sackur–Tetrode Equation

Calculate entropy for a monoatomic ideal gas.
