We study the statistical properties of two hard spheres in a two-dimensional rectangular box. In this system, a relation similar to the van der Waals equation is obtained between the width of the box and the pressure working on the sidewalls. The autocorrelation function of each particle's position is calculated numerically. This calculation shows that… CONTINUE READING
