Abstract

Teaching and learning which mainly based on conventional media offers limited resources in exploring a comprehensive concept of statistical physics phenomena. As a consequence, it needs to incorporate a computer simulation that has superiority in visualizing a wide range of complicated and abstract physics concepts. This study aims to develop a computer simulation of gas speed measurement as a learning medium on the subject of Maxwell distribution. Measurement of very small and un-naked eye gas particles requires special techniques and tools that involve a complicated process of selecting particles and measuring their speed. For learning purposes, this measurement process needs to be done with computer simulation. This research uses the ADDIE model which includes analysis, design, development, implementation and evaluation. The results of the simulation show conformity with Maxwell’s speed distribution graph which was obtained theoretically and need to apply to enhance the quality of teaching of this subject.
