Brownian motion Info

Particulate level simulations that show only solute particles are convenient, since they focus student attention on the molecules of most interest. However, such solute molecules move in a Brownian manner. This simulation helps students show solutes moving in a solvent, and allows the solvent to be made invisible. Comparison of this with Brown dynamics prepares students for later simulations that do not include solvent explicitly and instead use Brownian dynamics.
