Simulation 5 - Gas mixing

This is essentially the same as program 4, but with two sets of particles. The blue dots expand from the left (L) compartment to the entire volume, and the red dots expand from the right (R) compartment to the entire volume. This is often referred to as a “mixing process”, but it is basically an expansion of two different gases. Again, this program does not add any new idea that is not contained in the expansion process simulated in program 4.
