Another Crucial Idea of Ideal Gases

In my search for an interactive program for Ideal Gases, I came across this nice little program, which entails another distributive phenomena of Ideal Gases, which is the Maxwell Distribution, which shows the distribution of molecules at a particular velocity. The peak of the distribution is of course shifted right and lowered as you increase the temperature (due to the increased kinetic energy of the molecules), and the peak is raised as you put in more molecules (due to a higher spread).

This app also shows the relation between pressure, temperature and volume, with isobaric, isothermal and isochoric conditions which you can place on the system.
