Abstract

The typical characteristic for a system of particles is the number of particles contained in the system. Every single particle has a velocity v and an inertial mass m attributed to it. The typical physical parameters of a single particle that play a crucial role in interaction between the particles are momentum \(p = m\, v\) and energy E.
