Simulate the motions of the disks using each potential model for 1000 ps each at a density of 2.86E-6mol/m2 with an initial temperature of 300 K. Sketch the temperature versus time in each case..

2 Suppose you had a program to simulate the motions of N molecules moving in 2D. (Hint: The 2D applet in the DMD module at Etomica.org is an example of such a program when kept in “adiabatic” mode.)

(a) Simulate the motions of the disks using each potential model (ideal gas, hard disk, square well) for 1000 ps (1 picosecond=10^{–12} second) at a density of 2.86E-6mol/m2 with an initial temperature of 300K. Which would have the higher pressure, ideal gas or hard disks? Explain. Which would have the higher pressure, ideal gas or square well disks? Explain.

(b) Simulate the motions of the disks using each potential model for 1000 ps each at a density of 2.86E-6mol/m2 with an initial temperature of 300 K. Sketch the temperature versus time in each case. Explain your observations.

(f) Suppose you simulated the motions of the disks using each potential model for 1000 ps each at a density of 2.86E-6mol/m2 with an initial temperature of 300 K. How would the internal energy compare in each case? Explain.
