Unformatted text preview: Final Exam Review 19th May 2009 1 Kinetic Theory, Transport, Diffusion • distributions, how to get various properties from distribution (Maxwell distribution of speeds; Maxwell-Boltzmann distribution of velocities) • general considerations based on probability distributions; average prop- erty, most probable value of distribution, average of distribution • Collisions, mean-free-path, • diffusion concepts; given a probability distribution function for dis- tance (position) at various times, how to determine position at time t • viscosity; what it is; what it measures; how it is transferred/transported in the context of kinetic theory formalism • average distance = (time) x (average velocity) • root-mean-squared distance; equation and how to manipulate it to get different properties (time, diffusion constant, self-diffusion constant • sedimentation; know equations and how to use them • Know location of Constants, Integrals, Equations, diameters, diffusion constants, etc (begin with section 8) in blue book...
