Temperature: Cold Hot                        

This simulation shows the process of diffusion. You start with a container of 200 ideal gas molecules, in blue. Set the temperature with the slider. Then, add 50 additional molecules, which are red. How long does it take for them to diffuse? In other words, how long does it take for them to spread evenly throughout the box? Does this time have anything to do with temperature?
