Thermal methods are mainly used for the determination of physical or chemical change of substances as a function of temperature. Based on the change in the physical property, the thermal analytical methods named as different. They are as follows:
|Change in physical property||Name of the method|
|Temperature||Differential thermal analysis|
|Heat flow (enthalpy)||Differential scanning calorimetry|
These methods are mainly used in the polymer analysis and solid state analysis.
Maxwell–Boltzmann distribution: This is for the molecular speeds for different molecules with different masses and different temperatures. The light molecules have the high molecular speed than the heavy molecules. ...
