Numerous small hard spheres representing molecules are placed in a container as shown in the animation (position in centimeters and time in seconds). Here the relative masses of the molecules are RED 80 : GREEN 20 : BLUE/BLACK 1.
Which particle type has the greatest average kinetic energy? Note: Simulations will run for 20 seconds. Start
