Control experiment

As a control experiment, you might wish to check what happens to the piston in the abscence of the driver. In the simulation below, the driver-piston interaction is removed. The piston rarely moves beyond x=15, corresponding to an energy kT=1.5. The driver wanders off on a random walk.

5 movie05Control: Piston mass = 1, no driver-piston interaction
