Boltzmann distribution illustrated with balls distributed on a hilly landscape. At positive temperatures (left), as they are common in everyday life, most balls lie in the valley around minimum potential energy. They barely move and therefore also possess minimum kinetic energy. At infinite temperature (center) the balls spread evenly over low and high energies in…
