Maxwell-Boltzmann Energy Distribution Curves

HideShow resource information



  • no molecules have 0 energy
  • the area under the curve = total number of molecules
  • there is no maximum energy for a molecule (the curve would need to reach infinite energy to reach the x axis) 

Temperature and its effect on the curve:

  • as temperature increases, average
