Imagine that the container is a box in the form of a parallelepiped, the area of one
end- wall being A. How many molecules per unit time strike this end-wall?
Suppose that there are in this gas n molecules per unit volume. Since they all
move in ...
We shall give the argument in simplified fashion without being too careful about
the rigorous way of taking various averages. Consider a gas consisting of only a
single kind of molecule. Denote the mean number of molecules per unit volume ...
Let us now give an approximate simple calculation of the coefficient of viscosity. If
there are n molecules per unit volume, roughly one-third of them have velocities
along the z direction. Half of these, or \n molecules per unit volume, have mean ...
